Damn! We’ve Bought A House!

Or had our offer accepted; I should say.

Yesterday (as I mentioned) we spent a couple of hours filling out the paperwork for a loan and kinda sorta had pre-approval before we left.

Got SWMBO up at 0800 this morning and we headed out to sit down with our Realtor; Sue Harding @ Reid Realty in Belfair. We’re offering $350k and they pay the closing costs.

We had it all done by 1030. SWMBO left to go to the Genealogy Library and teach some folks Genealogy Schtuff. I left to go look at a place (plan B now) that offers 3 bed room, 2 bath & a 3-car garage on 8.5 acres out by where our present property is. (Well, within 10 miles. Dirt road miles!) Looked the place over (Double Wide Moble Home I mean in the middle of NoWhere!) then headed on out to the property and did some dirt moving (not much) and burning of that slash pile. It Hailed and Rained and I even heard thunder a couple of times.

Got home around 1630 to have SWMBO tell me that our offer got accepted. She got the call from Sue around 1530 and had been sitting on pins and needles until I got home so she could tell me. Damn amazing! Tender an offer and get a positive reply in less than 6 hours! I guess the owners were pretty motivated to sell!

Wait. Here’s some from the MLS listing:

Yep, It’s Freakin’ Huge! Of course, we still have some hurdles (Appraisal & House Inspection and a couple of other small things) but we could be moving by the end of May. Cool! I have my concerns, but…
