I’m freaking out a bit and I just need to vent my nervousness I guess. Here’s the backstory to all of this. I met my Fiance 3 years ago and at the time I was renting my house and he owned so it made more sense to move into his house, even though his house is one floor, 3 bedrooms (no basement), and together we have 4 kids (2 girls and 2 boys). So the kids have been sharing a room but quarters are tight. We also have 2 adopted cats.
Our house is a nice starter home for a family, we’ve done a lot of work to the house both inside and out. We just need an upgrade.
We were supposed to look at a really nice house (priced to sell) last week but the house sold before we even got a chance to look at it. I was heart broken.
Yesterday we looked at a really nice house that I actually got more excited about than the previous house after looking at it. GORGEOUS, all updated, 5 bedrooms, finished basement, bay windows, electric fireplace, large backyard…seriously this is probably close to my dream house.
So we put an offer in right away, and went into negotiations. Everything at this point is just verbal, but by the end of the night the owners accepted our offer under the condition that we have 2 weeks to sell our house. If in 2 weeks we do not sell our house, we either come up with the money to buy or they put the house back on the market and potentially someone else who can move in faster will get the house.
I honestly feel like my life is a ticking time bomb right now. We got our house on the market last night when we called our realtor over to write up our offer. I just want this house so badly I can taste it. Its a decent neighborhood, close to a really good school, the kids would literally be 2 blocks away. I could drive them there on my way to work in the mornings because the house is also close to work…
Tomorrow a bunch of realtors will be over to take pictures to post on the websites and hopefully they will all have prospects to show our house soon…..I’m freaking out. I didn’t sleep well last night because I kept thinking about this house and how much we want it.
Ok thanks for listening, I think I may be a little calmer now that I’ve vented.
