It's An Offer!
After looking at a kazillion houses in Southern Florida (well, at least 35) we have decided to leap out into the darkness and put a contract on a new home. Yes, we love our little house in Dell Lake Village but this is something we are going to do because we can (and a nice, new, really big house sounds like fun to me). This house is in Lehigh Acres. For those of you who have never heard of Lehigh Acres - it is a rather large area of newer homes that sprang up around a tiny town that was built out in the countryside near Ft. Myers in the 1950s. There are lots of spaces for homes but they did not all get built and the house we like is on the outskirts where the homes are few and far apart. Much of the forest area has been left so it looks like "old" Florida. This house has never been lived in. In fact I get to buy my own appliances and window treatments, how fun is that? I will let you know in a few days if the offer is accepted and how our buyer's remorse is going.
