Congrats!!!!! Make sure you get a well recommended inspector to check everything out. Don’t just use the one the realtor advises.

Congrats!  I’m glad you got it all worked out!  How did you manage to convince your realtor to get you a washer and dryer?  I like our realtor, but housing prices are high here, and I feel like he’s making a pretty penny for not too much work.

Yay!  Exciting!  We are hoping to close on our house late this week or early next week.  Trying for this week, but everything just takes FOREVER.

My advice….expect daily freakouts, panics, hurrying to get documents, even when you’ve already sent them.  I made it my mission to not be the bottle-neck in this process, which basically means I respond ASAP to everything.  It is very stressful.

Other advice….don’t buy anything!  No furniture, etc.  Just wait until after closing.  Anything that changes your financial situation is a no-no. 

I have had to keep reminding myself…..we’re buying a house, and in a few weeks it’ll all be over!  🙂
