I told myself I would wait until things were more finalized before blogging about it but… isn’t the whole point of blogging to (over) share? So while things are still a little up in the air I just have to tell you!
We’re buying a house!
We’ve been looking for a while but hadn’t done anything official until last week when we met with our realtor. We looked at 4 open houses on Saturday while my parents were in town and it was very… informative. We realized that what we were looking for was pretty specific and finding the right house in our price range wasn’t going to be easy. There was a 5th house we wanted to see but they weren’t doing any showings until an open house on Sunday. So we stopped by Sunday afternoon.
As soon as I walked in and saw a big, open kitchen I texted my parents and told them to come meet us at the open house. We spent about an hour chatting with the realtor who was selling the house, talking with neighbors in the area, and going over every inch of the house. We both knew it was what we were looking for.
After a cup of coffee and a lot of discussion… We knew we wanted to make an offer. The rest of the night was a blur. Good thing we had coffee.
We walked into the house around 3pm. By 10pm we had made an offer, they countered, and we accepted.
We have the inspection on Tuesday so we are praying that everything goes smoothly. Assuming we don’t run in to any hurdles, we will be homeowners before the end of the year!
There is no one I would rather be on this adventure with more than Alex!
Got any first time home buying advice for us?
