So we found a house, put in an offer and had that accepted. We expected a counter offer but they suprised us. Its a 2br 1bath old farm house built in 1900. It has a detached 1 car garage that has a summer kitchen in it. Its not huge and it needs some re-decorating type of work but we believe it to be a good solid house. It's going to be less that what I was approved for which is great. Its about a 25 mile drive from work, a small town and my neighbors have not only chickens but horses. I will blog more about it and I vow to remember to take pictures. I keep forgetting to take the camera out of the car and then I forget all about it. Now its down to frantically trying to get everything that needs to be done, ie inspections etc finished. We didn't expect it to go THIS fast and my W-2 hasn't come in yet which was going to be instrumental in it but it's covered now, THANKS MOM!!!!! The house has to pass a checklist, a home inspection, and an appraisal. Lately our middle names have been STRESS.
On a side note I got my Johnny's seed catalog, so far the only one I've gotten :(
