We think we found our new home
This last weekend we stopped by a house that looked like a good fit. 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, finished basement & a huge play set already in the backyard. The base of the house is really good, it's exactly what our family needs & there are only a few minor cosmetic cons. After we walked through the house, we began to sign papers to get started. We didn't (or I didn't) think things would work out, so I didn't have my hopes up.

Tonight we got the call that we got the house.

I was shocked beyond belief. I really didn't think this would follow through & my immediate reaction was cold feet. I thought, Is this the house we really want or should we wait for something better? To be honest, we're getting quite the bang for our buck & we're really not going to find anything better.

Sunday night we're going to meet with the Realtor to do some final negotiations to figure out a final price & a move in date. If everything goes our way, we may be in a new house in the next two weeks or so. Unbelievable, really.

Woo-hoo! I think new (to you) houses are so much fun! The fact that there are cosmetic needs only means that you'll get to put your personal touch on it. Congrats!
