We bought a house!

After a few weeks of exhausting looks at houses and a few heartaches we finally found our home!! We had found what we thought was perfect a week ago (see the last post) but the people weren't very easy to work with. Long story short they countered by only taking $2,000.00 off the price....isn't that what you might do with a car?! We looked again and had 3 choices - in order. This was Friday and we couldn't get in to talk to our loan officer until Monday morning. We decided to take the weekend and not think about the houses until Monday. As we were driving to Minneapolis on Saturday our realtor called and said we had problems. Choice #3 went under contract, choice #2 has an offer in on it,and choice #1 had people looking at it. Uh oh!!!!!!! We talked about it and decided to offer choice #2 their asking price because we know we can afford it and choice #1 was the original house and we knew they wouldn't work with us. So it happened and we now have a house!!! We have an inspection set up for this Thursday at 9:00 am so I will be taking pictures of it empty to post. What a relief to finally have a place to call home! More info later and hopefully some pics. Hope you're having a great summer so far!
