After two years (off and on) of searching we finally found or home! 
Initially our we wanted:
- A low maintenance "cluster home"
- To live in Gilbert
- A small yard
- A newer home

After searching and searching our taste completely changed. 

We ended up getting:
- A home that needs some work 
-  A home in North Mesa
- A big front yard and back yard filled with grass (this is actually my favorite thing about the house)
- And an older house built in 1975
- No HOA

More info...
When we first saw the home we were not so sure. Since it had everything that we needed we just decided to put an offer on it to see what would happen. Our realtor told us that there were already 3 other offers on it so we counted it gone already. 
However a couple days later we got a call that our offer was accepted! From that moment on there were some problems and hurdles to get through but somehow in the end everything worked itself out. 
This is where we are supposed to be and we are so excited!
Here is a sneak peak...
