Dream Home, part 3: a new twist

Within hours after seeing the house, Pedro and I decided we wanted to make an offer. Our realtor who is very conservative when it comes to buying and selling advised us to offer significantly lower than the asking price(which we could not afford) because of all the updating that would be necessary to live in.

We offered. They countered. We offered our max bid and they countered again. We were 10,000 dollars apart and we were done.

For some reason I was relieved. I don't know how I would've handled having a house on the market with two kids who love to pay with 8,076 different toys each day. I would miss my little house that we brought 2 babies home to even though we are outgrowing it. Have I mentioned that we only have one bathroom? It blows.

This all happened 2 weeks ago. Since then our realtor has been sending us various other listings. I haven't had the slightest desire to look at any of them. To get me to move it's going to have to be something special. And quirky. And have a whole bunch of potential...

Yesterday after two weeks had passed, we placed one last offer on the log house. We increased our bid by a measly $3,000 and included the words, FINAL OFFER.

Those of you who are reading and playing along, wondering how the story ends? Your guess is as good as mine. They have 48 hours...

Well, I don't know if I should say "I hope they take it", or not.

If it truly what you want, then I am very happy for you if they accept Can't wait to find out!

I would be excited, we need the extra space and its a lot of house for the price.

So much suspense...I'm thankful for these updates. Whatever happens I'm sure is MEANT to happen...though, I must tell you, my gut feeling is that you're not quite ready to part with your current house--which looks so darn cute (from what I've seen in pics!)

I know. My heart is very hesitant but I know deep down that we will out grow this house very shortly. And I know that we could make that house so rad--it's a log cabin! I love log cabins! I just hate the thought of moving.
