We're buying a house!

We accepted the sellers' counteroffer yesterday and signed the contract papers last night. Today our mortgage loan was approved at the fabulous rate of 4.5%. We're scheduling the inspection for next week and getting other ducks in a row. What an exciting time!

Here's a picture of the backyard through the screen door:


The deck canopy and wooden playset are staying. The yard is flat and well fenced, and there's plenty of sun so I can grow a garden. What a blessing!

that's fantastic! The yard looks great. Does the wood shed stay also?

Frances said...

Yes, the storage shed stays, too. We'll need it for bikes, tools, etc., since there's no garage.

CONGRATULATIONS! The back yard looks wonderful and so appropriate for the child-bearing years. I am really excited for you and can't wait to hear more details (what part of town?).

Yeah, the stuff out back should definitely stay. It looks like a fantastic place for gardening. It's big, bright and open, plus there's the deck canopy when you need some R&R.

Congrats on finding a home like that! It seems like a peaceful place.
