Househunting part 3
We made an offer! On the brand new home, "Lot #35"--it could be ours when it's done in July! It's still a back-up, really, because it is quite a bit more than I was hoping to spend, but honestly I am so frustrated with househunting I don't expect to find the perfect thing and get our offer in on time. There've been some places we've found that are okay, but already have offers on them. And we did lose out on the short sale we made an offer on--other buyers had put an offer in right before ours. Annnnnyway, assuming the perfect thing doesn't come up before July (we can still back out of this one), here's our new place!!
This is where our front door would be!
The view out our front door... the poles in the background are from the driving range next door. We could have worse neighbors.
I love the park areas that these townhomes have. You get TWO decks and NO yard, but a park strip right in front of your house! Sounds perfect to me because I am terrible at yard work and hate the muddy splashes that everything gets in Oregon when it's kept outside over winter. And the lot that we chose is of the set with the largest park area in the complex. Pretty cool!
I still have a hard time being okay with spending oodles and oodles of money and taking out the largest loan I've ever had! But thank you all for your comments on my last post... I really appreciate hearing from those of you who've bought new homes, older homes, built your own... I'm sure it'll all be worth it in the end! I cannot wait to get out of our little apartment!!!
