Good News!

The house is ours!!! After MUCH negotiation, the seller came to his senses and TOOK OUR ORIGINAL OFFER!!! The message from his realtor is that "he felt beat up by us". Umm sorry that we stuck to our guns and refused to be bullied just because we're first time homebuyers! We didn't ask for anything crazy, we just put in an offer we thought was very fair and wouldn't settle. I'm very proud of us!

He's also paying all of our closing costs, which I'm VERY happy about. And we will get J's commission from being the buyer's agent, so that should be a nice little check coming in for some up-front projects to the house!

Of course you know I'm already picking paint samples and looking at window treatments! I can't wait to decorate and actually fix the house up. Is it bad that when I called my bff K to tell her, the first thing I said is "wow, I need to update my registry! We need so much more stuff now!" haha. And did I mention the 11 closets???

Happy Friday! Enjoy this beautiful weather!!

rock it like you own it lady! last time I checked, it's not exactly a seller's market right now and he should have some thicker skin. 11 closets is the ultimate happy thought :)
