The realtor was really pleased. We all agreed they'd priced it well to start out with, and then they weren't being unreasonable about haggling about that. She said that other houses she'd seen in this neighborhood had also gone the first day or first week on the market. Apparently the owners cared a lot about having a buyer that was flexible with the closing date. They wanted time to buy another house, and they hadn't started looking yet. Our close date is Oct. 22, over 60 days out, but we have to give 60 days notice to our landlord anyway, so this will really work out great for us.
I'm getting really excited! I'm starting to have a vision for painting it and tweaking little things and making it my own. Now I just need decorating ideas! I've never had to plan like this before, so its a little overwhelming. This is the very first time I'll be able to pick my own carpet and paint colors.
We're got inspection coming up soon, and I'm nervous about that. Pray that we find the right home inspector, that he catches anything and everything important, and that they're willing to fix the things that are broken.
I think I'm going to start praying now for this house to be a blessing, for our family, and for all those that come under our roof. I am overwhelmed at God's goodness to our little family.
