Howdy, Neighbors!

Well, we've officially decided to move to the #2 neighborhood.  Our SR did a really good job of exploring options to keep us in the #1 area, but the options didn't pan out.  We would have had to lose some of the things that made us love the Rome (morning room, side-entry garage), so we decided to go where we could get exactly the house we want.  #2 isn't all THAT much farther out, and it's closer to my in-laws (and therefore closer to my babysitters!).  We're feeling pretty good about things.  Right now we're just waiting on our SR to get back to town on Monday so we can do the contract and such.  When we first priced out our home in this neighborhood the expected delivery was mid-November, which is actually earlier than we could have gotten in #1, so I'm hoping that's still the case.  I'd love to be moved in before the Christmas hubbub!

  2. Hi Amanda, this put a huge smile on my face!! Congratulations! You created a win/win for your family! Which community will you be moving too? We visited several builders in the area when my husband was trying to convince me to move to Richmond. We have family in the area and we tend to visit for huge family events.

    1. Thanks! Huge family events are part of why we wanted the Rome! :)

  3. Sounds like, all things considered, neighborhood #2 was actually the #1 choice all along. Congratulations! I love happy endings. :-)

    1. Thanks! It definitely is a better choice now! We were less thrilled with it at the beginning, but it looked better and better the more roadblocks we ran into at #1. So it has been the less stressful option.
