Most of us have moved several times in our lives.  First as the new first time home buyers into our very first homes. Excited and ready for that step in our lives.  I was so excited for my modest first home.  I had been married for a few years and was ready for the next step in life.  Then came the children and we grew out of that home and was ready for the next step.  Which neighborhood? Which school system?  I then wanted to be closer to the things in life that were the most important to me.  Family, friends, church?    Oops, we grew out of that home again.  We now had 4 kids, a dog, a cat and a 3 bedroom home...UGH....The big decision, stay in the old neighborhood that we had lived in for several years or move to a "New neighborhood", better school system, lower taxes A clean break to a new life....We took it..we did it.  Moved our family to the state next door, Missouri.  The kids weren't ecstatic, but they adjusted and life went on.  They ended up  loving and being  active in school and the  community!
We finally made it!  We had our first new home, built to our specification and I was the first one to take a bath in the Jacuzzi, my husband was the first to park in the garage.  We were the first to cook on the stove, the oven, use the dishwasher.............What a Grand feeling that is!  
Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of great homes for sale.. But Nothing quite like the feeling of a brand new home.  This might be a consideration in your home buying decision.  There are new homes going up all over the area.....I have a great team that can help guide you to the new home community that may be a perfect fit  for you at this time in your life!
