Well, this past week I've had the next three years of my life decided by a computer and I've put in an offer to buy a brand new house. My wife is graduating from medical school and she had to rank her top choices of residency programs. Those programs interview the interested candidates and rank their top choices from the med students. Then a computer tries to match according to preference. My wife and I liked Waco and they liked her so that's where the computer put us. We'll be moving there in May or June. Ty McNeely, here I come! So we found that out on Thursday and that day we called a realtor who had been referred to us and set up an appointment to look at houses on Friday. He took us around to about 7 houses. He started with dumps and they gradually got better. The last two he showed us were brand new houses that were in the process of being built right at the edge of Waco. The builder was asking a fantastic price for each house and after we left the realtor we went back out and looked at them and decided to make an offer on one. Woohoo! The houses are sorta cookie cutters but for the price it's hard to beat a brand new house with a year warranty in a really nice, family neighborhood that feels like it's in the country but is actually only 10 minutes from downtown Waco. Plus we'll probably only live in it for 3 years and we'll probably be able to sell it for more than we paid for it by that time. We're pretty excited but I can't wait to hear back to see if they accepted our offer. I've been sleeping pretty restlessly because I'm kind of anxious about it. On top of all that I have to start looking for a new job soon. My favorite. So anyway...exciting times in the Cook household. We can't wait to get outta Temple, TX. We're only 30 minutes from Waco but with everything they have in Waco compared to Temple it might as well be a thousand miles. Just thought I'd share. I've attached a picture of the house as it currently looks, it will have a front and backyard sprinkler system and he's going to plant grass too. brad cook ps - If any of you are from Waco and have heard of a builder called Summit Homes please let me know any info you may have about them.
