After 20 short hours on the market, Travis and I received an official written offer on our house yesterday (a verbal offer came 10 hours after listing)!!!! We were amazed to see that they offered us only $900 under our asking price, which we thought was insanely high. But apparently not!!! Of course we accepted! Now the whole thing is contingent upon an appraisal coming in at or above the offer. Cross your fingers!!!
As much as I'm bummed to leave our little house behind, I'm SO excited to start building our new home. It'll be so nice to never have to worry about moving again that it almost makes the hassle of this one and the next one worth it. Thank goodness that we don't have very much nice furniture or other heavy stuff to worry about moving. Of course, that also means that once our house is done, those boxes will come in handy as something for our guests to sit on since we won't have any furniture. With the new mortgage and driving the Montero in to Salt Lake everyday, furniture may not be very easy to come by at the old Tabbal house. Guess I really didn't think through that whole 2 family rooms and a formal living room, huh? Well, all in good time!!
