Last Thursday, JP and I decided to go ahead and put a bid on the house we have been looking at for a few months. We had heard that the lady that owns the house is pretty difficult to work with so we were kinda worried about how it would work out. We didn't hear anything Friday, Saturday, or Sunday...needless to say everytime I talked to JP he was asking if I had heard anything yet. Finally Monday afternoon our realtor called with a counter offer, and we counter offered again. We were thinking she wouldn't accept it, since she was supposed to be such a tough lady, and started looking at other houses online. We even scheduled a time to actually go into a few houses so we wouldn't lose anytime. That afternoon our realtor called back to say she accepted out terms! :) We are so excited! The house is super cute and will be even cuter after we add a little be of own personal touch to it! We have scheduled the inspection for next Thursday. If everything goes well there we will be under contract for the house. We scheduled to close twards the end of July to give the bank plenty of time to get everything together. They said that some refinancing of houses were taking 60 days or more, so we didn't want to risk anything.
JP picked me up from work on Tuesday and we went to Lowe's to look at paint and flooring stuff! It's so exciting! We have a whole list of things that we imagine doing to our house over time! It's almost like a dream!
Hope you have a Friday and weekend!
