Getting a house seemed impossible for me for the many years that I dreamed of having one. I watched as friends got married and then had the ability to buy a house with their spouse. I am single, so it seemed to be an impossibility to me. I never gave hope, and one day luck came to my door by way of being the first person to learn about a house for sale that needed an extreme amount of love. The only thing needed in order to move in was to get an electrician in Passaic County NJ to come in and rewire a lot of things in the house so that I could use the electricity properly. I moved in as-is after that.
When I learned about the house, I just happened to be out to lunch with a very close friend who sells real estate. She and I had not had a chance to catch up in many years because she was so busy. We lost touch after she got married and went on to quickly have two children. As soon as she was able to, she then got her real estate license and threw herself into selling homes when she wasn’t busy with her kids and husband. Getting caught up was great, and made even better when she heard I was looking for a place but felt I couldn’t afford one. She quickly told me of the little house that I now have that wasn’t even on the market yet.
When I went to tour the house with my friend, I knew immediately that I needed to be the buyer. The place needed so much work, but there was no way that I would be so lucky to be the first to learn of another place like that. Now that I’ve moved in, I am working on projects throughout the place a little by little and it is very gratifying.
