Secured My Dream Home In 48 Hours.
I’m writing this story both as a reminder for everybody, including myself, that we all are capable of creating the life of our dreams.
Having just graduated college, I was worried about where I wanted to live because everywhere seemed pretty pricey. In San Diego, most areas will cost you $800 and above for a single room and I really wanted to pay less than that. So I made a list and on that list I said I wanted a single room for less than $700. I wanted to live in a house, not an apartment. I specified the exact city and asked the Universe for it to be less than a 15 minute drive to my university as well.
I ended up finding the perfect house on Craigslist but when I went to the open house, it had already been taken. Disappointed, my friend and I immediately looked for another house and found one on Craigslist again. It was exactly what we were looking for: 5 bedrooms, great neighborhood, close to Costco and a major shopping mall and close to campus!
I declared that this house was ours in the middle of that Starbucks where we had been searching on line. There were not even photos on the ad! It was risky but we quickly put out a Facebook post, looking for roommates to join us.
In 4 hours, we had 3 other roommates. The next morning we went to the open house and I fully expected it to be the crappiest house I had ever seen but no. It was beautiful. We told the home owners that we wanted it and the next day we signed the lease. Just 48 hours and certainty was all it took. And of course, a whole lot of gratitude!
Thank you Universe!
