Offer & Counter Offer

We are getting a house!!!

I've been blogging wanting a house forever and now my wish is finally coming true! We made an offer on this great place; its almost 1,300 sq ft, has a two car garage, a basement, 2.5 baths and two bedrooms. We offered $10,000 less than the asking price and were met halfway, which still comes out to a little less than we expected to pay. I am so excited. There is so much to do. We are working on getting an inspection, then all the other necessary stuff you never think about. I'd be lost if not for the guidance of my Realtor. She is one patient lady. For more than a year, she has taken me to look at probably more than 30 homes. I bet she is happy I finally found one.

I've wanted to buy a house since I was 20 years old. I remember looking at my savings account and thinking, "I should buy a house". Really though it was my college money and it wouldn't have gotten me much of a home, but thats when it first became a dream of mine. Now Levi and I will get to do it.

Yeah if you are not careful, I might start making sure you eat veggies and wash behind your ears.
