My husband and I decided to look at some realtors in Denver when our landlord told us that we were not going to be able to renew our lease. We did not hold any bad feelings about this because we knew that he needed the house for his son who was returning from serving overseas. It also jump started us on finding a place that we could actually call our very own, instead of just a house that we are renting. The house we had been renting was really nice, and I knew that we did not want to go from that to an apartment either.
I contacted one of the realtors that we had found, and I explained that we were only interested in luxury homes that were on a piece of property that is at least three quarters of an acre. I thought there might be a few in the Denver area, but there are so many more than that that had everything else that we wanted too. We wanted to have three bedrooms, a home office, a patio that was designed for entertaining, a swimming pool, and ample parking.
When the realtor gave me a list that was a few pages long, I knew that we had come to the right person. I was really happy to go through the lists too, and I narrowed down our search to two properties. We went and looked at both of them, and I could not believe my eyes when we saw the second one. I had seen pictures, which were gorgeous, but they did not do this property justice. I told my husband that we had to make an offer that day, which we did. We closed on it not too much after that, and it feels amazing to finally be building equity for ourselves instead of someone else.
