Because history has proven that the chances increase that you will make a bad decision the longer you think about it, we got the ball rolling Monday to put in an offer. Much pain ensued, but after some running around, we got the mortgage guy enough paperwork that he was willing to give us a pre-approval letter, and we sat down with our agent to put in an offer.
At noon I got a phone call with a counter offer, which we accepted.
Yay...we get to start the adventures of being homeowners again!
It's a nice house...at 1940SF it's big enough for us, but not too big(although my wife is already looking at a couch for the living room). The back yard has several grape vines growing in it, which has the potential to be nice next fall. To my wife's delight, it even has a room already set up for homeschooling.
Even more luckily for me, it means me wife will be doing most of the packing!
