I didn’t want to mention this until I was mostly through the process, but I’m under contract on my very first house! The inspection turned up no major issues, the appraisal is done, the loan is approved, and the closing date and time are set, so I think I may even get it!
Built in 1925, it is a two bedroom bungalow. The place is in fairly good shape, has a new roof, insulation, furnace and water heater. I’m not in love with the finishes the seller used, but that’s the fun part! She’s done all the hard work for me.
The second bedroom is so going to be my craft room. It has great light. I’ll see if I can fit a day bed in there too, so when my friends visit they don’t have to sleep on the couch! Eee!
I’ve got a week and a half until closing, and I haven’t even started packing. Turns out I’m more attached to my rundown apartment than I thought I was. Actually, that shouldn’t be a surprise. I hate change so much I tried to refuse the new computer my work is trying to foist on me. 🙂
