I haven't said anything, even with all the posting I do on here, but for the past several months we've been looking to buy a house. Poor Jeff has to commute to Charleston every day and it takes a big chunk of his day. Plus he often works 10 to 12 hours so there are nights he hardly has time to sleep so we're 'compromising' on location and we've been looking at houses half way between Charleston and Huntington.
Well, we were approved for a loan recently and we found a few houses that would be great for us, and one of the owners just accepted our bid!
Still some crap we have to go through, and as first time buyers we have to be really careful, people around here like to screw 'ignorant' home shoppers, so we've done a lot of research and I've talked to a few law student I went to school with (soon to be full on lawyers) about what to look for and my friend said she'd look at the paperwork for us before we sign anything.
Talk about 'vibrating'! You think I was gushing over my new guitars? I'm absolutely 'orgasmic' over the idea of OUR OWN HOUSE!
No more rent, just mortgage, taxes, upkeep and.... oh Dear Lord, don't think about that just yet! LOL
If everything goes smoothly, or at least; not too rough, we should be done with all this and moving by the end of next month, or early the month after that. The house is great. Three bedrooms, two baths (HUGE shower in the master bath, love to take long showers, and it has this gigantic shower head that comes out of the middle of the ceiling.
) It's all modern, an older house but it was recently updated. New kitchen, baths, they said even the wiring was totally redone. No knob and tube crap.
The inspection will be this week, and Jeff's father knows the inspector that's doing the walk-through, so we know he'll do his best to catch anything and everything that could be an issue... so........fingers crossed.
And why am I telling you guys this? I'm telling EVERYONE! LOL
We've kept it under wraps so far. We didn't want to tell anyone and then have it all fall through, but it looks like it's really going to happen now.
Okay, enough. I should actually get to work. I just got the call from the Realtor and posted this to every forum I frequent... and sent a text to everyone in my contact list. LOL
Only one real downside I see.......no new guitars for a long time.
But I'll have a HOUSE!!!!
