Well.....that was odd......

So I just got a text from Andrew stating, "well I'm buying the house on Mink" and in case you forgot already (lol) this was the original house, the split level with some water damage. Wow, things sure did turn around quickly with that situation!

Last night the realtor told Andrew that the house was his if he wanted it, the bank FINALLY accepted the offer (this had been going on for 2 weeks or more). We talked about the options for a good 2-3 hours on the phone last night, what work would need done, what we liked about the house and so on....I went to bed with a heavy mind wondering what we were going to do. This morning, still unsure, Andrew decided to walk through the house one more time and check things out a little better. There was still snow on the ground at our previous showing and we couldn't find the septic or the well to see if they were in okay shape. Apparently everything turned out alright, or else he wouldn't be wanting to buy the house.

The mortgage he qualified for will allow us some money for repairs and some updating the house needs and we will still "make out like bandits" since the house is very reasonable for what its worth. It has a nice deck and a decent yard, a good sized garage and big closets (which if you know me will come in handy).

So here's to seems more crazy to see that written out!

Congratulations! I am sure that you know you are buying at pretty much the best time in history to buy... may you always be happy there.
