The Crazy Story: Part 2.


Here is House #3. To recap, we made an offer on this house last Sunday afternoon. We heard back on Wednesday that she counter offered a bit higher than expected, but we were about to counter when our realtor said there is another house in the same subdivision we should see before we do anything.

So on Wednesday night we went to look at House #4. We fell truly, madly, deeply head over heels in love. It was everything we wanted in a house and more. It was not just our first house, but our dream house.

The Stats:
Colonial
3 bedroom
4 bathroom
Gas fireplace
Finished, walk-out basement
HUGE deck overlooking private wooded area

It was already in the subdivision we loved and it had so much more of what we wanted. It made this whole entire process worth it. It made us grateful for every house we had lost along the way. We felt this urgency that we had to have this house NOW that we headed straight to our realtor's office to make an offer and walked away from House #3.

Yes, it was pretty impulsive of us. But we were ready to fight for this house. And when we woke up Thursday morning I didn't regret our offer one bit. I knew we made the right choice. Even our parents adored this house and thought it was a better fit for us.

It was another long few days of waiting, but we got the house!!!!! The inspection is tomorrow and if all goes well the long house hunt will be over!

Congratulations on finding a house that you love. Husb and I found our house by going to view one in the same neighborhood. After the realtor left we called a for sale by owner; viewed the house right then and knew from the moment we walked in that we wanted that house. It was already under contract so the likelyhood of us getting it was slim but 72 hours later we found out that the house was ours. We have been in it for almost 5 years and have loved every minute of it. Good luck with everything. Buying a house can be very stressful btu is worth all the hard work.
