Ahhhhh!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D

They didn't accept our offer BUT they did a counter offer!

Mr FT had told me that if we had to add up to 3k to it, he was fine with it.

They asked for 1.5k more - with the allowance of letting us keep whatever furniture/appliances in the garage/tool shed/house that we wanted.

I of course said YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT - We'll TAKE IT!!!!!!!

C, our Realtor said the couple loved our bio, and that may have been partly what sealed the deal for us. Big Grin

He's going to come by my work tomorrow with some more paperwork to fill out. Then we're going to get started inspections.

Closing date is scheduled for Friday, May 13 (the day after we get back from our honeymoon.)


Mr FT and I are going to go out to eat somewhere tonight to celebrate crossing this first major hurdle towards the finish line of being homeowners!


We need to get my boss something as a thank you gift - she's the one who sent this address on to me to look at. If she hadn't nudged me that way, I may not have even seen it, because I was only looking at places with photos!

OH .. the final offer price is $141,500. The sellers are paying the 3.5% Realtor fee.

    How exciting! I hope the rest of the process goes smoothly. Happy Easter too!

    Congratulations!! That is super news. I bet a bio did help personalize it. And they are getting a deal too, but not paying a full commission.

    Yay!! So glad that aggravation is out of the way. I know there will be other hurdles during the buying process, but nothing you can't handle.

    Congratulations, how exciting! Lots more planning added to your agenda. Does your realtor walk you through the process and help guide paperwork through the various channels? Can you share pictures of a few rooms so we will all share the joy!
