Made an Offer on a House Today!
We made an offer on a house today. Wish me luck! We sold our house last fall when we moved to Seattle for DH's work. It was a house we lived in for over 25 years, and it was the only house we ever owned. So buying a house now is very much like buying for the first time. It's all new and scary for us!
According to our buyer's agent, we are just about the only people in the market for a house who are NOT trying to stick it to the sellers. We are not going after short sales, trying to capitalize on others' misfortunes. We are not even asking for any special perks like buyer's bonuses or for them to pay our closing costs.
It is nicer than the house we left behind, and has a pretty, fenced level back yard with some already established flower beds. So keep your fingers crossed for me!
