Our House

We bought our first house this past week! We put in an offer last Saturday, she countered Monday am, we countered right back. She countered Monday pm and we countered back with a final offer. She hemmed and hawed and wanted to speak to her accountant about it and sleep on it. 6pm Wednesday night we got the call that she had accepted! We are still in amazement. We got a great deal. The timing was great. The agent has gotten 3 calls since then with people wanting to see it a 2nd time. Had that happened prior to her accepting our offer she would have never accepted. Did I mention we got a great deal? 3br/2ba nearly 1600sq not including a basement that has already been started to be refinished, and it is 1.6 acres of land. Inspection was today and the biggest issue is the septic needing to be pumped-"Shitters Full"~ala Christmas Vacation Movie. Nothing else was a big deal at all. Met with the broker today too, signed a bunch of papers and all that is being processed. So we are on our way! We feel so lucky to have found it and are excited to move into our first house. Closing is set for Aug 31!
