The proposal, the real estate companies, and the document signing are all done differently there. Like anyone else, O and H found their biggest challenge was submitting a competitive proposal in Knoxville’s “hot” housing market. But within two months, they found a pleasing home in which to raise their growing family.
For about seven months now, O and H have enjoyed planting things in their backyard and inviting friends over for parties. They also enjoy not having noisy neighbors on the other side of a wall or ceiling! Like everyone else, they relax in the confidence that they are now investing in their future and their children.
What’s the most difficult part of home ownership for O and H? You can probably guess. H says, “The maintenance! Me and my husband have learned every detail of plumbing, mowing, electrical fixtures, and machine connections. We have become very good in fixing things.”
We hear you, H! We feel the same way.
