Good news! We made an offer on a townhome yesterday and it is officially under contract! We are praying that nothing falls through, and we are still sort of mentally in limbo, waiting for bad news to crush our dreams. I’m sure everything will work out, but it’s hard not to second guess yourself, especially with the horror story-experiences of my friends, hearing how many contracts fall through over time. I know what happens, will happen for the best! But, we are pretty excited about this one.
Yesterday we made an offer on the place, and it was killer having to wait several hours before we heard back. We tried everything to distract ourselves, and ended up watching tv shows from about 2pm-9pm. By 7:00, we had received a counter-offer, and we agreed and signed. We still really won’t know how things will work out until Tuesday, due to a contingency on the sale and offer, but things are looking up. It’s so hard for me to not start planning paint colors and decor and ideas, but I don’t want to be let down later, so I am doing everything I can to not look at ideas and immediately imagine it happening in that home. It’s tough!
Eventually, I plan to share some of our experiences of house hunting, and tips from what we learned. It can be a pretty daunting thing, especially for your first time, and I hope by sharing what we went through will help others going through the process, too.
Until next time!
