We got the house!!!!
After 13 months of house hunting (the last four of which were intense) we got our perfect house! I am soooo excited!
I hadn't really said anything for about this house because it was all so touch-and-go. We were following it online for a while, but it was out of our price range. It dropped twice, and the second time it did we ran straight it with our realtor. That same day we wrote an offer for close to the asking price. Despite the fact that ours was the only offer they had received in over a year, the sellers' agent told us that his client "doesn't do counter-offers."
That was the end of July. Last week our agent contacted us - the sellers finally agreed! We went back through on yesterday, filled out fresh paperwork, and just a couple hours ago the sellers signed! Settlement is October 15 - the day before my birthday!
It meets just about everything on our wish list:
- 4 BR
- full basement
- hardwood floors
- well over 2000 sqft (not even including the huge basement!)
- a ton of other things!!!
We still want a walk-in in the master and granite in the kitchen, but hey, we like projects!
If anyone is interested, here's the link to our new house!
