Life's Big Moments

It's been awhile since my last post. With so much going on I really just didn't have time to sit down and type. For starters, we put an offer on a house . . .

It was a low offer. A full 25,000 below their original asking price. We expected a counter offer. What we didn't expect was 3 other offers coming in within a day of ours. What a coincidence huh? In the market today with over 3500 homes on the market in our city alone, the one house we really want gets multiple offers the day that we put ours in. We we're probably the lowest offer and the sellers agent gave us a chance to come in a little higher. We did, we came up to almost the most we would pay for the house. And . . . They choose us. They countered our offer asking for a mere $1500 more than we offered, which was still within our range of reasonable prices.

We signed the papers last night and are now undercontract to buy our first home! How exciting is that?

It's a cute 3 bed, 2.5 bath house. 1500 finished square feet, and a 500 square foot unfinished basement. They have just had all the carpets replaced, the entire interior of the house was painted, and they just put in a new fridge, dishwasher and microwave. It has wood floors in the kitchen and a nice deck out back with views of the mountains.

Can I tell you again how excited I am??!!!

We are set to close May 15th, and while I know there is a lot to get done, it can't come soon enough!
