Sweet Home Opelika: A Story of Perseverance & Faith

129 Carter St

After getting married to an Auburn girl last year, I tried to sell my house in Opelika, but it just wasn’t meant to be. Lucy put her house in Auburn up for sale and had an offer within thirty minutes. That’s no exaggeration, and it sold to that person who made that initial offer. Several months later, through a local rental agency, I was able to find a renter for mine.
We were married for almost two months before we were all under one roof in a house in Auburn. Due to my house not having sold and other financial constraints, I was unable to obtain a loan for our new home. I had no doubt that I’d soon be able to become eligible for that loan, so I signed a six-month lease-to-purchase contract.
We were very excited about our new home. It was only 40 years old but had an old southern charm to it.

I should’ve had my doubts. For the rest of the story, click here…
