It happened quickly.
We got a call on Friday night that a house we'd looked at dropped in price by about 60,000!
We had to decide THAT DAY if we wanted to place a bid on it. There was no negotiating or counters, only a single bid and we had no idea how many other offers there would be.
I was freaked out, but I knew the deal was too good to pass-up. This house would be gone fast!
We put in our bid and waited.
Saturday morning our agent called and said "Congratulations! Your bid was accepted!"
Holy crap! What?!
We got the house people.
If all goes as it's supposed to and the inspection passes, we'll be home owners in May!
For those of you who know the Seattle/Eastside area, we'd be moving to Maple Valley - Four Corners to be exact. It's about 25 minutes from where we live now and will be out a little farther than we envisioned, but it's perfectly acceptable.
I'm a little sad to be moving from my lovely Issaquah and my sister and nephew, but I know that this house will be worth it. It's got a hot tub for god's sake! Yeah, you heard me right...a hot tub.
The property needs some fixing up and the house could use some updating in the kitchen and bathrooms, but ya know, it's not a big thing right now. All in good time. Right now, we need to get us a washer and dryer! And a dining table. And living room furniture. And new locks. And paint.
That's really it though. Craig's List - here we come.
So without further adieu, here is what will most likely be our new residence -
Wish us luck!
