House hunting

We have been house hunting for what feels like FOREVER. It has taken so long I was beginning to think it was like Bigfoot, ya know, you hear about people finding the perfect house, but you can't find it yourself.

We've looked at houses so often that my daughter groans when we drive by a "for sale" sign. We found a few that we liked & when we'd go to make an offer they would already be pending. One of them went pending an hour after we saw it! It has been extremely frustrating. I thought there was a housing crisis and no one was buying houses, sheesh! Evidently, that must be everywhere BUT here.

Well, out of the blue we stumbled across the perfect house. Big enough for us, all hardwood floors, wonderful location, fenced yard, sun room, attached garage. Just beautiful. Unfortunately it was priced a bit above our price range, but something said "go for it". We prayed and made an offer, a bit under what they were asking, and they countered. In their counter-offer they gave us everything we asked for, plus all the appliances, but they wanted more than we offered, but less than they were asking. I called my mortgage specialist and have been waiting on pins & needles to find out if they will give it to me. Finally, I got the phone call, we are APPROVED! We have found BIGFOOT. My daughter thinks we need a sign made that says "Welcome to Bigfoot" to put on the door after we move in. I kinda agree with her.

I'm as excited as a squirrel on a trampoline!
