Remember this house I was looking at in December?
Well, in early January I put an offer on it and someone came in with a better deal. I wrote it off. The other day I got an MLS alert from my broker: The buyer couldn't pull the financing together. It was back on the market. We dusted off the old offer, submitted it and last night while I was enjoying a "Super Tuscan" Sangiovese blend at one of my favorite Italian restaurants, I got a phone call from my broker. They accepted my offer! Woo hoo!
Of course it's not a done deal yet. I still need to sign the P&S and make sure it passes inspection. I know it needs work so I'm sure that with excruciating detail the home inspector will point out what needs to be done. If you recall this house is a foreclosure. The previous owners had all good intentions of finishing the basement and making some final changes to the bathrooms but apparently ran out of money.
It's in a great area, has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The backyard is huge! All I need to do is put about 3 or 4 yards of fencing on either side of the house to enclose it for the Bandit. Even though the appliances are new, I want to put in stainless steel, reconfigure the island a bit and add granite counter tops.
Anyway, just figured I'd provide an update. Hopefully all goes well.
