There’s No Place Like Homes!

That’s not a typo. We are about to have two homes! We’re closing on a lovely new home in Viridian DFW next week, and then closing on our existing home exactly a week later.

Our new home

That’s not the sequence you normally want to do, but it’s all working out super so far. If I seem a bit scarce online during the next couple of weeks, I hope you’ll understand.

Our Old Home

My wife is already making amazing progress with our packing. I mentioned in a recent post we are down-sizing (right-sizing) to a smaller home, so we’re also getting rid of excess “stuff”.

My wife nearly has our kitchen packed

I’ll share more about our new Viridian neighborhood, and the builder of our EnergySaver home David Weekley Homes in future posts. I’ll also share a bit about the awesome realtors at The Wall Team.

Note: This post is not an ad or compensated. When we like something, we like to share it with others. :)

    Wishing you all the best in your move! We just sold our house less than a month ago. Things happened faster than we expected, and we are currently renting until we find another house. We are downsizing also. I have to tell you, it feels GREAT to give things away to others who can use them! Looking forward to your next post!

      Hi Kelli. Thanks for stopping back by. Congratulations on the sale of your home. They have been selling quite fast in some areas of the country. I remember you saying you gave away some of your excess furniture to family (as well as some you’d been storing for other family). Good luck with the house hunt. It’s a great time to buy with the interest rate still so low. Keep us posted.

    Good luck with your move and welcome to Arlington (if you’re moving from another DFW city)! Looks like you have an awesome new home! You’re gonna love having River Legacy across the street.

      Thanks, Torrey! We’re excited about our move to the Viridian master planned community in Arlington, TX. Per your question, my wife and I have called Manhattan, Amsterdam, Vienna and Dublin home over the years, but Arlington Texas has been my home since 1997. Yes, we’re quite excited to live adjacent to River Legacy Park, a real jewel here in North Texas! And I love Viridian’s extensive community trail system and 1,200 acres of wetlands and community parks. Our 5-year-old daughter and I had a blast at Viridian’s screening of Disney’s “Frozen” outside in Inspiration Park last weekend.

    Hi Michael: I found your blog by accident when searching Viridian. My wife and I are also “rightsizing” our way to Viridian, from Fort Worth. We are closing at the end of this month. We are both looking forward to this big change. I hope we can see you at the Lake Club!
