Buying a House - Part II


Well folks, we got the house!!
Ended up paying $5,000 more than we put in our offer, but that is okay, cause that is still a good $20,000 less than that house would have easily sold for on the market! Man, what a blessing - moving into a better house AND getting it at a steal! (We have a home inspection this Monday, so hopefully that won't turn up anything nasty).

We get possession of the house Aug 5th - man that is going to be such a long wait :o(

We already called a daycare and the school in the area. Good news on that end as well, the daycare is literaly 6 houses from the new place, and the school is around a block away. It gets better, this daycare only charges for the days we bring McKenna there, which means we'll be saving around $200/month on daycare - bonus!


Next on the list to do: Sell the current house.

We had an agent come down to the house today. Everything is looking very promising, houses are flying of the shelves around here, and going for a good $20,000 over the asking prices. Seems there are around 8 offers/house in our area - definitely there are people wanting a house here. So, there is a definitely a chance we can sell this current house for the same price we bought the new one at. If that in the case, then this will really help, as we can then buy some new furniture and replace some of our older stuff! Plus pay off some debts we have.

Our house is going into the listings Monday, then will show the following Monday to Wednesday. So, in less then 2 weeks this should be all over with!


I'll tell you something though, cleaning up, repairing this current house to make it more showable sure is taking a ton of my time lately!

:o)

hey man, bring on the Zombies! I've played my fair share of zombie games, and watched enough zombie movies to know what to do!
