This is how our home looked when we first set eyes on it in June.
It was advertised as a "banging buy on the water that won't last long!" And it didn't. It was only listed 3-4 days before we found it. Our realtor was amazing and had way more information than we could have possibly needed to base our decision. We did a quick walk through, checked out the yard, counted over 20 palm trees, and told her we wanted to make an offer. We were literally leaving for Ohio the next day, so we were in a hurry to get our papers signed. We had looked at 2 other homes that weekend, and this one was the clear winner. It was a third trip to Florida to house hunt, and the third house we had seen that weekend.
