this is so scary! I hate being an adult sometimes! We started off really low, but it has been on the market for a long time and have not had any other offers…so, we are hoping that we can meet somewhere in the middle.
Man, let me tell ya, they sure do things different in the country than the city.
Wish us luck please and send prayers our way!! We are in a LDR and we are realllly ready to have a home together!

Good luck. I am currently staring at the phone waiting for our realtor to call me back to see if they accepted our offer. So nerve racking

It is scary! We also just bought a home, and I almost puked on the way to the closing I was so nervous!

Ahh fingers crossed! I would be really interested in how your process has gone. We are just starting the process and I would love a fresh perspective on how you have gone about searching for a home and decided what amount to offer.

Fingers crossed! It is nerve-wracking waiting for an answer!

thanks for all the nice wishes & good lucks- nothing yet! It is so hard because our realtor is in our wedding too, so I feel like I can bug him more! He has to think I am crazy and over anxious! Oh well! 🙂
@msbrooklyna- we really didn’t do anything yet. We met with our realtor and we just started looking and put an offer in. We are moving to a really low key/laid back area so we didn’t even get pre-approved. Our offer didn’t even have to be in writing- crazy!
I will keep you all posted- Thanks again!!

This is such an exciting time! Good luck and good vibes to you 🙂
We put an offer in on our first place in March, and moved in two weeks ago. Nothing beat that excitement of hearing “your offer has been accepted!”

UPDATE: we didn’t get that house, she wouldn’t budge on the asking price….but then we found an even better house for 30k less & on a lake! So, we are closing in 2 weeks!!!!! (hopefully) final inspection is sometime next week & that should be it! AHHHHHH

@chittychittybanebane: HOLY CRAP LADY!!!! Can I come visit??? I wanna live on a lake!!
That’s awesome, so glad the first house fell through. We had something similar happen, so glad it worked that way for both of us 🙂

@MrsSl82be: Thank you! I still don’t want to get my hopes up that it will all go through… even though I think at this point we have overcome so many obstacles- it just has to, right? It’s a foreclosure so there are A LOT more hoops to jump through!! It needs some work, but Im excited to get the keys and get in there!
