And I am so nervous!! We haven’t been looking that long, but we found a place on Sunday that was amazing. It needs renovations in the kitchen and bathrooms, but is still all in livable condition.. if we don’t mind scary pepto bismol pink tiles. It’s on a high floor in a nice full service building and waay bigger than other places we were looking at. Because of the renovations it was in our price range.
This is really nerve-wracking.. I was cool as a cumumber until I submitted the bid and now I’m so scared! I’m already nervous about the cost of renovations and other things going wrong.
This is such a big deal! Anyone else going through this??

We put in a bid over a week ago, but it’s short sale so we’re expecting to wait a while. If it takes the full 3 months the realtor said it probably would to hear back and we get it, by the time we close I’ll be 8 months pregnant…. so we’re really anxious to get it! We found a place that needed very little work mainly b/c since I’ll be so pregnant when we move I won’t be able to be much help. But since my favorite color is pink, I would love to have pepto pink tiles! I’m jealous!

Good luck! And the cosmetic changes that you can make definitely cost a bit, but shouldn’t matter as long as the price is right for you. You’ll have a while to make the renovations, and as long as the place has potential, you’ll be fine! Heck, 3 of our 4 bedrooms had some hideous wallpaper in them, but we knew the place had potential once that came down and we make it our own!
