Ok, we bought the house conditional on financing and the home inspection but those won't be a problem, we don't think. We have to go in to our realtor's office tomorrow to initial a change in closing date and to give our deposit. We have until August 5 to get our financing in place and to get the home inspection done and the closing date (the date we take possession) is October 10 or maybe the 15, I don't remember, but I'll know tomorrow. Either way, as long as nothing surprising happens in the home inspection, we'll be in our house before the winter - which is great, because it has a garage!
We ended up competing with another offer so we paid a little bit more than asking but I'm ok with that. It really is a gorgeous house. It's 1700sq ft with two bedrooms on the main floor and two in the finished basement. There are three bathrooms. Here are some pics of it:
|Front of house|
|Kitchen/basement stairs/living room|
|Master bedroom (walk-in closet visible in hall;|
master ensuite is across from that door)
|Second main floor bedroom|
|Basement rec room with entertainment area|
|Patio and backyard|
|Fruit trees - the closest one is a pear tree!|
|Back of the house|
The place doesn't have the tubs we'd want (the tubs are the acrylic surround-type), and the kitchen might need an island, but those are things we can change.
This house is on the other side of town from our current location and it's near the river and some other parks. The little doggie we're going to get is going to love this place :)
