My Husband's Thoughtful Gift Started a Home Search
I love telling this story because it is true and happened to me so I know something similar can happen to others. We never know what the catalyst might be that sends a buyer looking for a new home. In my case it was not having room in my kitchen cabinets for my new cookie sheets.
A few Christmases ago, I love to bake so I mentioned to my husband I really needed new cookie sheets. On Christmas Day I opened the package and found two of William Sonoma's finest cookie sheets and was delighted. Now I could throw away those crusty old warped cookie sheets I had had for so long.
When I was putting all my Christmas gifts away I noticed I didn't have room for my new cookie sheets, They were bigger than my last ones and wouldn't fit in the cabinet. Bummer. Then I tried teh pantry. That didn't work either. I was not going to return them. Encountering this frustration was like popping a pimple because all the dissatisfaction I had about the kitchen and the lack of storage space came spewing out.
My kitchen was packed with cooking gear and there was no room for more. In fact, it was a challenge to find enough kitchen space to prepare a meal for my large family. I lamented about how I wished I had a new kitchen and it didn't take long to move from talk about a new kitchen to talk about a whole new house.
Talk them progressed to selling our home and building the kitchen I wanted in a brand, new home. The home search started. Within a couple of weeks we had found a lot and started the process toward building a home. Our friends marveled that we could make such a big decision so fast. What they didn't understand is that I had been on the edge for years.
Here's the truth. When something is in the back of your mind it only takes a small catalyst to get the ball rolling. I had been annoyed for years by my small kitchen and the cookie sheets pushed me over the edge into spending close to $300,000.
