Another house update

So Andrew got home. Yeah! And we walked through the top three houses yesterday. One of them didn't quite cut it, but we loved two of the others. They are very different and both have huge pros and cons, so it was a tough, tough decision. After much debate, we decided on the one we wanted, prayed about it and felt good. So we decided to put in an offer on a real pretty brick one I had told several of you about.

We worked through the details with our agent and had everything ready to go, but Andrew started having some hestitations because of some changes that have been happening in work. He has a meeting on Thursday of this week that should give him a better feeling for the direction of the company, so he wants to wait until after that to make the offer. Our agent said we should still be able to close on the 20th.

If by some some chance that house sold before Thursday, I think we'd just go with the other one that we really liked. And with the housing market being pretty slow out here, I think the chances of BOTH of them selling before Thursday are very slim.

Plus, the appraisal on this house will take place Monday morning, so we'll know for sure if this deal is going to work or not.

So, we're still kind of up in the air, but I don't feel stressed right now. We've got some time to get it all together. I'll keep the updates coming. Exciting stuff.

Oh good, I liked the brick one. I hope it works out soon. I hate waiting for big events to take place.

Cool! I like the brick one too. I hope that everything works out perfect for you guys.

Where is this brick house located? And when you do decide to make an offer put some pictures up so we can see! I am sure everything will work out the way it is suppose to. If the house does sell, then it wasn't meant to be. But hopefully it won't and that will be the way things are suppose to be! Can't wait to see what it looks like!

It's always a little nerve racking waiting for the appraisal number. It drove me nuts when we were selling our house in Florida. Good luck on the appraisal today!
