Big News: Who Wants to Buy My House?


Betcha didn't see that one coming, did you? Well don't worry, David and I didn't either! But, in an incredibly whirlwind turn of events over the last few months, David has been approached, interviewed, offered and accepted a new job! I couldn't be more proud of him and the opportunities that lie ahead for him, his career and our family. 

Unfortunately, this amazing new job lies about 75 miles south of where we currently live. That's right, he's driving just over 150 miles each day through some major Atlanta traffic to get to work. No bueno.

When we decided he would accept the new job, we did some major soul searching and praying about whether or not we should move. It just doesn't make sense for us to stay in our current city for a few different reasons. Of course, there's the obvious 150 mile round trip trek for David, but I also drive about 25 miles south to get to work. And most (ok, all!) of our family and friends live south of us. But EEK! Leave our beloved, beautiful, blood + sweat + tears dream home?

It's been a tough decision, but I think it's the right one. We've decided to list our sweet little house for sale. Hopefully, the house will go on the market within the next week or two (the "for sale sign" picture above is just doctored!). We've already met with a real estate agent and the process is underway. If you've been wondering why it's been a little quiet over here on the house project front, now you know why... instead of painting furniture and decorating rooms, I've been busy organizing, cleaning and  prepping the house to sell! Of course, I'll be sharing the process along the way.

Now let's get to the fun stuff. Who wants to buy our house?! All of you know how much love David and I have poured into our sweet 1952 ranch. It really is a dream home! For those interested, we're located in a city north of Atlanta in an adorable historic area, within walking distance of several parks, trails, a lake and a downtown square with shops and restaurants. We're in city school districts as well. Of course, you can check out our house tour here.

If you know anyone who is looking to purchase a home in north Georgia, pretty please shoot me an email (tenjuneblog@gmail.com) and send them my way!

Like I said before, I'll be sure to share the process ahead of us, including the work we've done to prep the house for listing, and hopefully the process of moving (and decorating!) a new home down the road. We've got so many amazing blessings ahead of us... thanks for being along for the ride!

  3. Good luck Michelle! I hope your home sells quickly. How is the housing market down there? Up here in CT some houses take quite a while to sell and then there are others that sell kind of quickly.

  8. Hey, Michelle, congrats on the move & job! But, I can imagine how sad you are to leave that beautiful house. It is a gorgeous house, so I know it will be snapped up. I adore it! So, maybe you'll be closer to ATL activities now & we can get together more often. I'm looking at houses actively right now, hoping to find the right fixer upper I can afford.

  26. Congrats to David! I didn't see that coming at all!!! You have a lovely home in a GREAT area (I can vouch for that). I just wish Elie and Chris were looking in that area, but it would be a helva commute for both of them!! I am assuming you guys are looking south of the city? It is pretty around P'tree City/Fayetteville!!

  51. Congrats!! I understand your reasoning though for moving closer to the city. I live in Gwinnett and about 30 miles from my one of my offices and the commute KILLS me. EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. So I couldnt imagine doing 75 miles one way.

    But how fun will it be to house hunt!!
