Well I did something yesterday that I really shouldn't have, but felt I needed to. I went to look at a condo to buy.
It was built in '72 and it was small, but figured it wouldn't hurt to look.
It's been on the market for MONTHS, but it just so happened that they had an offer on it yesterday. Well the realtor asked if I wanted to look at another home, a half-plex. Sure, why not?
It's brand new and the builder is motivated to sell it. It's a corner lot and has many upgrades. It's about 1200 square feet and has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It's not huge, I'm not looking for huge. It's comfortable and bright which I am looking for. The backyard is super tiny, but I'm not looking for a big backyard. It has a nice courtyard in the front, finished 2-car garage, and beautiful exterior.
The builder is offering incentives to get rid of the inventory and could be purchased at an amazing price.
However, it will take a miracle from God for me to get this home. I know that with God all things are possible and I would love to have this home. I even thought that it would be cool if someone would like to purchase the home with me - kind of like an angel investor where they could invest $227,000 which would allow me to pay off my bills (so I'd just have the mortgage to pay) and put a considerable amount of money down on the home to keep the payments really low. Then within 5 years I would refinance the home and pay back the investor all the money given + equity built up (in proportion to the investment).
I thought I could go on an all out marketing campaign for my biz's - maybe I could get an awesome amount of referrals and really earn the funds to pay off my bills and have a sizable downpayment.
I thought that maybe I could just beg people. HAA HAAAA Just kidding.
Whatever I do, whatever God does really, would need to be quick and within the next few weeks.
I think of all the things I could do having my own home: practice hospitality and bless others through fellowship and sharing meals together, having the kids I teach at church come over to hang out (the girls would love to have a slumber - all night party!), I could have a real home office (instead of splitting the bedroom in half LOL), we could have Bible study in my home and more. It makes me smile when I think of what I could do for others.
So if you could help me pray about this miracle for my dream of becoming a first time home buyer that would be awesome! This particular half-plex is an incredible opportunity. Regardless, I want God's will for my life. I know that He will give me the desires of my heart if my life is pleasing to Him. I also know that when many prayers go up awesome things happen because the prayer of a righteous man (or woman) is powerful and effective.
If you have referrals or ideas, let me know.
