We had absolutely no intention of buying another house. We had talked about how nice it would be to take advantage of the ridiculously low-priced real estate market in Vegas, but we knew it was more of a dream than a reality.
After a good friend of mine at work started looking to buy a house, she would email me listings of homes they liked. When I saw the amazing values of these homes, I had to tell Jeff about it. We talked to a couple Realtors and decided, it was definitely a buyers market, so we would look to see if we found something we couldn't resist, and if so, we would keep our house and rent it out.
After looking at one house, we fell in love and knew this was a deal we could NOT pass up. 2 months later, we moved into our new home on Spiced Strawberry, truely my dream home, a place where we will live for MANY years. Below are a few pictures of the living space and the outdoor space (almost half an acre which is unheard of in Vegas)... more to come in the Spring when our new landscaping is in full bloom.
Family Room and Dining Room (view from the kitchen)
Our Kitchen (SO big, I have a few cabinets with 2 items in them... one just had Tupperware lids!):
Formal Dining Room (looking out to the front of the house and our courtyard):
Living Room (this is open to the Formal Dining Room)
In this picture you can't really tell, but the way the yard is set up is the pool is in the middle, and then on both sides of the pool there are grassy areas surrounded by landscaping... SO NICE!
