Bought A House! Almost.

Well last night the sellers of the house we put an offer in on countered our offer. It was a good counter and showed they were ready to sell. They came down off their offering price about a quarter of the way down to our offer price. They agreed to give us a home warrenty, a refridgerator, and pay most of our closing costs.

We went ahead and counter offered again to try to get the price down to half way between thier asking and our original offer. They accepted and we agreed on a contract. So if everything goes smoothly we will own this house in mid April!

Next on our list is getting house inspected probably next week. At that point we will either renegotiate or move on with the deal depending on what the inspection looks like. Hopefully nothing major will be wrong and we can move along to close the deal at closing.

So we are getting close to making our very first house purchase!

This is great news for you! It's definitely a buyers market, and it sounds like you are benefiting from it. Congrats!

Thank you both for the congrats! This is a very exciting time in our lives and we cannot wait to close on the house and move in. It is going to be a big year for us with the house and wedding.

How much of your cash fund is going to be used for the down payment?
