Not a lot of people know this, but we have only lived in Indianapolis for just 3 years. We actually just celebrated our anniversary. It’s kind of a crazy story how we got here! My husband was working for a large company at the time and they had already moved us twice before this. When he received the phone call that they would be sending us to Indy we were shocked! Not only was that a total life change, but we only had 10 days to make the move.
And when I say make the move, I mean find housing, schools, and pretty much a new life. Oh, and don’t forget packing… Who gets a completely new life in just 10 days? We did! We had only been to Indy a few times to attend the Indy 500. We didn’t know the area at all. So trust me when I say I spent hours upon hours looking at all kinds of websites and apps to try to find us a home and QUICKLY!
By far my favorite website is Trulia. Plus, they have an awesome app! It’s so easy to use and has all of the information you would need when looking to either purchase a home or just needing a place to rent. I found a lot of sites that lead me to other sites when looking for info on like schools or neighborhoods. Plus, they have an advanced search so you only look at the houses that are of interest to you. No aimless scrolling over homes that don’t apply to you. Thankfully! We all know what a time suck that can be!
Thankfully I was able to find us the perfect little condo in a snap! What a relief that was We drove down to check it out (4+ hour drive) and grabbed the keys right then and there! The condo was just as great as it said it was online.
It’s been the best place for our new life here in Indy. We have been fitting right! It’s our own little slice of life and the best part is we get a little crazy on family game nights. We have this super silly game called Head Bands and we act out fun things. Thankfully nobody can see us, because I am pretty sure they would have us committed. Or maybe we just might be able to get a reality show out of it..
What are some silly things you do when you truly feel at home?
The #TruliHome campaign highlights the ease in which people can find their homes, and the sometimes quirky things people do when they truly feel at home. To kick-off the #TruliHome campaign, Trulia created online videos to bring to life some of the unusual things homebuyers and renters look for as they search for their perfect home. They are a crackup!
I seriously can’t stop laughing:
- Acoustics: A couple searches for the perfect home with great acoustics, so they can finally communicate to one another in their language of choice – whale.
- Southern Exposure: A Vitamin D deprived family closely enjoys the warmth of the sun in the comfort of their perfect window-filled home.
- Winners: Everyone loves a lazy weekend afternoon outside on their private deck -and this couple has a tradition of their own, clothing optional.
And that’s not all. In addition to the new videos, Trulia is giving away $25K! Whether you refuse to step on the cracks of your hardwood floors, answer your phone in fake voices, or walk around naked at all time, Trulia is helping consumers find their #TruliHome by giving away $25,000 to one lucky winner.
