Congrats, it seems like we are in the same boat (our offer was accepted Sunday and we are having the home inspection tomorrow). What about you guys, have you already opened escrow?

Congrats! It’s a super smart idea to stay mum withfriends and family, We learned the hard way that getting too excited and opening our mouths too soon only made things harder down the line.

Now to be a Debbie Downer…. try as hard as you can to remain emotionally detached. This is, first and foremost, a very, very expensive business transaction that must be approached with a calm, cool, and collected mind. Things can go wrong at many different points along the way. Don’t get emotionally attached to this house. Even if it doesn’t work out for some reason (which is always a possibility), there will always be another house to buy. Don’t start decorating the place in your head, fantasizing about the nursery, etc. because that will only make it harder for you if you have to let this house go.

@lovekiss   This is excellent advice. Don’t get too emotionally attached just yet and don’t make any major plans surrounding the closing date either. Ours has been postponed 3 times now. It’s about to be 4. If we had any major renovations booked or a stricter timeframe in which we had to be out of our current place we could have been in trouble. Good luck!

Congrats!! Hope the appraisal and the inspection go swimmingly :-) . Are you getting the couches as well? Just wondering since you mentioned them, and furniture isn’t usually included :-) .
