Flashback Day Post #7; We found a house and we love it! Is it the right one?

Today is Flashback Day!
Flashback Day is a day I will dedicate my Disney Blog post to our story of Moving to Walt Disney World Florida!  

I kept a journal, complete with pictures of our move to Florida and I'm going to share it all with you here!


It starts 4 weeks before we moved to Florida, back in 2008, when we were in Asheville, N.C. and decided to make our Dream Come True by moving to to the Walt Disney World Florida area!

Flashback Post #7

Title: We found a house and we love it!  Is it the right one?

Journal Entry:

25 Days until the big move!!!

So as of yesterday we have decided we really LOVE the 4 bdrm townhome. 

I know there are people out there who would not like living in a resort, but we mostly keep to ourselves and love the idea of having happy vacationers as our neighbors, meeting new people at the pool and park from all over the world, and having the neighborhood to ourselves a lot of the time.

We are moving to Orlando to have fun, and being WAHM (work at home moms), we are at home a lot, so we can really enjoy ourselves there.

Nick, my realtor, is checking it out for me today. He is going to look at the area around the resort, check out the resort and the home itself and call me with his thoughts and opinions.

Apparently it was on the market for sale these past few months and just went up for rent a couple of weeks ago, for a much higher price than it is now.  The price was just reduced a lot, and I feel I should really jump on this opportunity. 

The home itself, from the pictures, looks incredible!  It's fully furnished, includes lawn care, trash pickup, water, pest control, cable, internet and electricity!

It's 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms ~ and 2000 sq. ft.!

We're living in a town house now, that's 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  Trevon has his own room, I have the master bedroom with Mahnara and Amy has the mid sized bedroom with Zarius.

It had a large basement, so it's 3 stories, and it's 1800 square feet.

It will be nice to have an extra bedroom and 2000 square feet of living space!

I have no idea of the cost of electric in Florida.  It's probably high, since it's so hot so much of the year.

I personally like to be cool all the time.  I keep my home nice and chilly.

I love the idea of the electricity being included, so I'm not shocked by any power bills. 

The resort is very close to Disney ~ not even 10 miles away.  It's very easy to get to also, and is close to grocery stores and a variety of shopping and restaurants.

I have researched the zip code and the numbers are very impressive.  The crime stats are lower (or better) than the ones here in Asheville, and we live in a nice neighborhood, in Biltmore, near the Biltmore Estate.

The price is super too, it's only $1200.00 a month, and remember, that's all inclusive!

We're paying $1100.00 a month here, plus all utilities, cable and internet!

I just need that personal opinion ~ since I can't go there and see it myself.  The price is so good, I don't want it to be in a crappy or bad neighborhood so I'm SO happy and grateful that Nick, our realtor, is going over there to check it out for us!!!

I look forward to hearing from him, and I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that *IF* it's meant to be,  then it will be perfect for us ♥.

I will let you know when I do anything final. I am waiting for a call from the agent who rents out the house, hopefully she will call me today☺.
