The Inspection

So here’s the house update…

Last week I met with my real estate agent in his office to craft an offer for the house.  I’ve never bought a house before (or made an offer), so this took several hours, and I was very, very tired, having worked the night shift 3 days in a row prior to the meeting.

He presented our offer that night, we negotiated a bit over the phone, and I gave them my bottom line final offer.

They turned it down.

“It’s not over till the fat real estate agent signs,” he said.

And we waited.

I got a call on Sunday afternoon, they had accepted my offer!

Yikes, now the real work starts.

Get an inspection, call the mortgage broker, get a credit check (My FICO is 790!)

more later…
