My SO and I put an offer in on a house that we both fell in love with. The owner countered our offer and we accepted. We wanted the washer/dryer they had in the house but they weren’t going to budge on it regardless of how much we came up. etc.
However, we asked for a nice chunk for closing costs and because of a really interesting situation we may not have to have any inspections done which will save us a lot of money. Someone already tried buying the house a month ago but their financing fell through after they went through ALL of the inspections and the appraisal. The owner offered up the paperwork for all of these inspections as well as the appraisal so we can save money and then take the allowance to buy a washer/dryer.
All I keep doing is looking at pictures of this house. I’m so in love with it. It’s newer construction which is perfect. I’m tired of living in a 65 year old house that the landlord doesn’t keep up. The whole house really needs some time and love. The basement gets water every time it rains, etc. We’re just so excited for a newer house. It’s completely move in ready, the owner looks like they’ve barely lived in it.
I’m still in shock that my SO and I are buying our first home together and I’m still in shock that we’re actually getting the first one we fell in love with.
We have a fast closing time which I love but hate. I love that I’ll get to be in my new house sooner rather than later but I hate how much we have to do to get ready.
I’m probably going to start crying when we walk into our house together for the first time.
