My life is insane. I just had to share that.
So I shared over the weekend that we’d gotten a reasonable offer on our house. We countered. She countered. We came to an agreement on Sunday. Home inspection was yesterday and we’re still waiting to hear the results of that. We don’t expect anything major.
Also on Sunday we went to see a house out in the neighborhood that we liked that was for sale by owner. It was a random thing. I’d driven out the week before to see if the house we liked in that area still had a for sale sign in the yard and saw this one up the street with a tube of fliers on the FSBO sign. Grabbed one. Totally fit our size parameters, but was well above our budget, so I didn’t think anything about it, but I called for an appointment to see it anyway.
We went Sunday afternoon and hubs was determined not to like it. I mostly just assumed it was out of our price range and would be a good comparator to the one we intended to buy. Then we walked in. KATHUNK.
Perfect was an understatement. We wouldn’t even have to paint. It was exactly what we wanted except for not having a fence and we were going to have to build one at the other house too. Four bedrooms, three bath, nice kitchen, 2 car garage, gas fireplace, floored attic, and A PANTRY. NONE of the houses we’ve been looking at had a pantry. The folks who are selling are super nice. About our age. Moving to shorten their commute.
In short, we LOVED this house.
So we came home and ran the numbers to see what we could reasonably afford. I’m big on numbers. I know that shocks you. 😉 So we figured out what we could afford and we made them an offer to start negotiations. They countered. We countered again.
And we came to an agreement.
We are getting our perfect house. :FLAIL:
And we’re moving in T-minus 37 days. EEP!
Oh and I’m still trying to finish Red before then. GAH!
So if I’m not around as much as usual, that’s why.
