A blind offer. Defined as: placing an offer on a home without seeing the inside of it first.
We signed another contract and placed a blind offer today. Actually two different blind offers. The pictures online look beautiful. But pictures can be deceptive. And both houses still look good from the outside. The one thing we know for sure is they are both the style of house we want. And in the neighborhood we like.
It seems absolutely crazy. But I know we can't ask Heavenly Father to bless us with the right house if we haven't done our part. So we are trusting that He knows what He is doing and everything will work out exactly as it is supposed to. It always has in the past. After all, I was blessed with the perfect teaching job for me--made some life long friends and learned some life long lessons-- and I had just about a million interviews! And then I quit my job before Casey even had one. But he has a great job that provides for our needs! I just know that everything will work out with buying our first house as well!
P.S. Today is Devin's 9 month birthday. Aaaah! I have a 3/4 year old baby/ toddler-ish. And we placed our first (and only other) offer exactly a month ago.
