This is old news by now, but after much prayer and deliberation, B and I signed the papers on the house on Saturday accepting the seller's counter-offer. We are just a little excited.
We still have lots to do... signing away our lives for a mortgage, inspection and appraisal, and figuring out how soon the current owners will be able to move. And Lord willing, everything will progress smoothly, and there won't be anything weird or scary to make us re-consider. Y'know, like a cracked foundation or plumbing that needs to be entirely re-done, or any of those frightening scenarios that keep running through my head.
I can't quite get over the fact that I seriously fell in love (or crush or whatever you want to call it) with this house, oh, I dunno, 8 months ago. And I never would have imagined that it would still be on the market when we were ready to consider buying a house. Or that we agreed on a price that is significantly less than what they were asking a year ago.
God is so good. I can't wait to move in.
