The Search is Over……..

We hope. (crossing fingers, rubbing rabbits feet, holding four-leaf clovers etc.)

After months of pain-staking searching.  After visiting nearly 60 houses, mostly crap we may have finally found it.

Friday we signed a contract for this house:

We found out it was going on the market on Monday.  We saw it Tuesday.  We made an offer on Thursday.  On Friday they met us halfway and signed the contract.  That’s it.  After months and months it got wrapped up in about 36 hours.  Funny how things work out. 

This house is still in town (plus #1), is on a cul-de-sac w/ lots of other kids (plus #2), well within our price range (plus #3) and could be the last house we buy (plus #4).  We walked in and it just felt right.  This was the 3rd house we made an offer on and frankly it is the best fit for us.  Nice yard, move-in condition and we can build onto it in the future.

Now, nothing is final yet.  We still have a month before closing.  Anything can happen but we are fairly confident that this will go very smoothly.  Well, as smooth as a house sale can go.  The fact that there is a finish line in our sights is the biggest thing.  So now we sit and wait.  This is going to be a looooong month.

In the meantime, what are you all doing the 2nd or 3rd weekend in January.  I may need some help.  : )
