My house is officially on the market!! Come buy it!
Kyle, Kyle’s parents, my mom, and I all spent time cleaning up the house and getting it ready to sell. We repainted lots of things, and I even re-grouted the shower!
Kyle worked HARD!!
Our realtor came by with a photographer to take pictures of each room. Can you tell which bedroom is Kyle’s and which is mine?
I bought my house in November of my senior year in college. I had already been accepted to medical school and I knew I would be in Indianapolis for at least the next 4 years. It was 2009 and the housing market was down super low. I had saved money from inheritance from my grandfather and lots of years of Christmas money I hadn’t spent. So, I decided to go for it and buy a house!! It turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
My sweet house is old but sturdy. It has housed many people during the past 4 years. With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs as well as a huge room and half bath in the basement, it was easy to rent out every year. My renters were my roommates and good friends. Their rent covered most of my mortgage which helped me afford property taxes and repairs as they were needed. I feel like I grew up in this house! I went through all of medical school in this house. I have lived in every bedroom. I even lived in the basement for a semester!
I want to honor all the amazing people who have lived with me in this home and made these four years so wonderful.
Starting with that first summer of 2010:
Kelsey- my incredible sorority sister (and president of our sorority 🙂 )
Tamara- my grand-baby and sweetest girl ever! (She’s on the left with the amazing hair)
Mandi and Adri- the hilarious and fun girls who split my basement for the summer! (Adri on the left and Mandi on the right)
Tony- a fourth year medical student at the time who needed a place for a few months before he moved to Alabama with his wife. He lived in my basement with his adorable dog Daisy!!
Samantha- my little sister in my sorority 🙂 She loved this house and I loved living with her!
Katie- Another amazing sorority sister. She’s a pharmacist now!
Kristen- my other little sister in my sorority and law student extraordinaire!
My two little sisters were two amazing roommates!
Kelly- My super gorgeous and hilarious pharmacist friend
We had too much fun in college!
Sarah- another pharmacist and best friend who looks amazing as a blonde or brunette!
Kelly and Sarah are great friends and the three of us had a blast living together.
Hollon- My Southern Belle. She lived in this house for 2 and a half years!!! Love this girl to death. She married a classmate of mine and they are the perfect couple!
Jamie- my medical school mentor. She is one year ahead of me and went to Wash U for Dermatology. She is also the smartest person I’ve ever met.
And my very latest roommate: Kyle!!
So many people have left such great memories in this house. I am going to cry like a baby when it sells.
Have you sold a house? Any advice- I need it!!!
Have you had roommates? Do you like having roommates?
