House Update!!!

Okay it's been a little while since I posted a blog. Things were so crazy the last few weeks while we were house hunting that I was not spending much time on the computer. Then last week work was busy and I barely had time to check e-mail let alone get online for my personal business.

But we have great news! We are officially in contract on a house! Here is the story from the beginning. Last Monday we were scheduled to look at 4 mores houses. The very first place on the list was a house that Joe had found online. I didn't know much about it but he really thought it was going to be a good one. The moment I walked in the house I knew I loved it. It was everything we wanted and more! So we went to two more houses and then told Drew we knew we wanted to put an offer on the first house. So Tuesday afternoon we submitted our offer. However we found out that another offer had been submitted 2 hours before us. That made us really nervous but we just had to wait to see what happened. The next afternoon (Wednesday) we recieved a counter offer from the seller. The offer included information that they were submitting more than one counter to multiple parties and they reserved the right to chose who the accepted. So within the hour we recieved the counter offer we faxed over our acceptance of the offer. The seller had originally stated that they need a response from us by Thursday at 3pm and then by Friday afternoon they would chose who they wanted to accept. So we accepted their offer but stated that they had to tell us yes or no. So Wednesday night we got word that the seller accepted our offer!!!

Here is our timeline:
Inspections this week
Apprasial next week
Closing June 30th

We have our apartment until September so we have plenty of time to move! We plan on painting the second and third bedrooms before moving but that is all the work that needs to be done on the place before we move in! It's great! The house is 3 bedrooms with a loft upstairs. There is a dining room, living room, family room that is open to the kitchen and eat-in kitchen space. There is also a basement but it is unfinished. I can't wait to move in!!! I am having Joe take pictures this week at the inspection so I will have something for everyone to see soon.
