We got the house!
After a bit of haggling back and forth they accepted our offer. We're going to close the end of June and then we're letting them rent it back from us for July. They'll move out July 31st and then we'll have all of August to paint and change a few cosmetic things before we move in on August 31st, since our lease on our apartment isn't up til Sept. 1st.
We have the inspection on Tuesday, and unless we can find something majorly seriously wrong with the place, its ours! The only way we wouldn't get it now is if WE backed out--and we have til the 31st to get back our earnest money (extended the due diligence time to 10 working days instead of the usual 5 so that my dad can come up from FL and check it out for me)
The best part is, there are a bunch of fancy new houses on the block that have been selling for crazy prices, so if we keep our looking nice and the market keeps going up, when we want to move next (prob. about 5-8 years) we could stand to make some serious dough!
The kitties are excited cause there's a little backyard that they can play in on their leashes and eat bugs! Well, they would be excited if they understood English!
