New Home Owner

Well, we did it!  This morning my husband, Dave, and I bought a new house!  We’ve been home owners before, but for the past 2 1/2 years we have been renting.  We left our home in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina for the beautiful Rocky Mountains that surround and protect our north Big Horn Basin.

Once you’ve been a home owner you miss having your own home.  For the time we were renting I always felt I was borrowing the house.  Now, I will once again truly feel “home”!  The federal government, for better or worse, is helping us become home owners once again with their $6,500 tax credit for existing home owners.   We qualify for this since we owned a home three of the last five years.

Being a REALTOR and also a new home buyer is a wonderful double “growth experience”!  Johnson Home and Land has empathy for all of our buyers and sellers, but the personal experience helps increase this!

Well, I’m out of here to go home and move furniture and boxes!  Yahoo!

About Jyl Duffy

I love being a REALTOR and Office Administrator for Johnson Home and Land. There's no place like home here in Wyoming. This is home even though I enjoyed living in Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Carolina previously. With my husband, Dave, when we're not busy working we enjoy our Christian activities and being out of doors fly fishing, camping, golfing or snow shoeing. Wyoming is the best place to be for our active outdoor lifestyle.

    “Home is where you rest you heart” – beautifully said. Thank you Wyoming Dreamer. We are resting easy and well. I’m surprised we didn’t loose 10 pounds in 2 days with all the exercise of moving! We’re happy settling in. Settling will continue for some time, of course, but it’s so much fun making a house a home.

    Attitude is everythin, content and thankful today.
