The first house we made an offer on became a bidding war. In this market, what a surprise! We were in competition with three other offers. The good thing was, we had seen another house we liked just as much. As the day wore on, both Brendan and I kept thinking of this other house and how it was just as good, cheaper, and still in a great neighborhood. I drove by the house that day, and he came home from work saying he'd ridden his bike past it, too, neither of us knowing the other was doing it! When our offer on house #1 got countered, we just walked away. We promptly had a second showing of house #2 and made an offer. It got accepted tonight!! We are completely ecstatic and ready for this wonderful horrible life of being homeowners!
Meet our new house:
I am already decorating and landscaping in my head. Hopefully we'll close the end of April and can be in there for Ingrid's birthday!! So happy right now, so happy.
