Huzzah!

Our offer was accepted today! Provided nothing nasty comes up in the inspection/loan process we close on May 29th. It still feels a little surreal and I find myself unexpectedly...grieving? For all the houses that could have been. I honestly expected it to take us months and months and months to find a house. I had steeled myself for that process. So to find "the one" on our second day out...and have an accepted offer less than a week later...I'm still in shock.

Has anyone else gone through this?

Also anyway of dealing with the well meaning negative nellies who love to tell you "Oh, you'll hate that." or "You should have bought out here" etc, etc, etc. Makes me want to scream. (And yes, I know, I should just keep my damn mouth shut, but I apparently have no filter for big news.)

Anyway! A picture!

The House

I love that house! I'd like to see the interior.

And I, too, think about all of the other houses out there, especially the house I liked a tiny bit more than the house my husband and I are closing on this month. That house is still on the market, and I'm sure it's sucking up the owners' resources. Why didn't they take our reasonable (or even slightly generous, considering the first quarter comps coming in) offer?!

If you click on the pic here, it should take you to my flickr account, where there are some interior pics. More will be coming soon, as we have our inspection tomorrow and the utilities will be on (meaning we will have light to take pictures!). : )

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. : )

Ah, my laptop made it seem like it wasn't clickable. Odd.

It's stunning inside, and I like how wooded and established the neighborhood looks.
