I doubt that either of these two terrific people ever had to kiss a frog in their lives but they certainly learned that when it comes to looking for a new home that you do have to look at a few frogs before you find your prince.
In this case we found a few homes that frogs would definitely love. A little bit of water in the basement, overgrown yards and a few bugs for sustenance. However as with any house hunt you just have to keep on looking. We named a few of the houses along the way "granite house", "squishy basement house" and "overgrown yard house." In the end we found just the right house and yesterday it became theirs.
With a little bit of paint (who doesn't love a camouflage basement), carpet cleaning and a new refrigerator this home will be a gem. The home even got the parents approval, an important piece of the puzzle. Thanks to a VA loan, a cooperative bank (foreclosure) and an listing agent who stayed on top of their side of the transaction, we went from contract to closing in 3 weeks.
So another foreclosure in Prince William County is off the market and in good hands. Congratulations you two and may you have many happy years in your new home!
