So we put in an offer on the house. We should know by tomorrow afternoon. We dropped about $4k off the asking price, requested they leave all appliances and purchase a home warranty. Buyer agent believes this is a very good deal for both parties given the neighborhood and specific place.

We shall see. It may be quick from here, where we'll get pretty much everything in order before we vanish to France. Except the loan which will take into November to process, most likely. but that should be a shoe-in given that our credit scores increased in the last month and I cut what debt I have in half.

Good times. We also heard that our earnest money from the short sale is in the mail and should arrive in just in time to be the earnest money for this other place. :)
I'm rather excited about the whole thing at the moment. Fox and I chatted about the house and we both realized that the only thing we'd want to change immediately is repainting the basement.. er.. second basement. There are two. And maybe the bedrooms. Otherwise, we love everything about the first floor, the yard; we're happy with the den/office basement thinger (basement 1) and the bedrooms are all fine... though we may remove the built-in desks. They're a little dated.

No major work immediately.

Also, it's really funny when LJ sends you updates about random journals you created as a joke. See: the_nathan_game for details.
I.. have no new photos. So....

WELL.
Looks like they're accepting our offer after a little back and forth over the shed on the property.
They keep the shed. We get the washer, dryer and warranty at our asking price.

Woo! Guess we have to pay for it now. :)
