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!)
