Our New Home

We put an offer on a house this weekend! I'm so sooooo excited and hope the bank accepts our offer quickly so we can close on June 7th. We chose that date because it's after the cutoff for payment being due July 1st. So we wouldn't have our first payment until August 1st. =)
The house we are trying to buy is a 4 bedroom/3.5 bath house on 1.2 acres with a diving pool and basketball court outside. There is a full basement with 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, an office, and family room with a fireplace. The master bedroom is on the main floor along with the kitchen/dining, Arizona room, laundry room/pantry, 2.5 bathrooms, and living room with another fireplace. There's an enclosed courtyard in the front of the house and a HUGE patio in the back. It definately needs new floors and LOTS of paint, but other than that, it's in pretty decent shape. I'm sure we'll eventually replace doors (I super hate the dumb flat doors!), faucets, lighting fixtures, etc. And we're considering knocking a few walls down, but for the most part it'll fit our family just perfectly!

Btw - it's listed at 1800sqft, but it's actually somewhere around 2300-2500. Also, we didn't offer the asking price. We offered a little bit less because of what will need to be done before we can even move in (flooring, paint, appliances).

Such an awesome house! I'll be crossing my fingers for you that it all works out. I love the laundry/pantry. So huge!
