Now that we have accepted their offer we're going back to look at the house that Sparky really really wants. We're going to go over with a fine tooth comb and then make that couple an offer which will be contingent on us selling our place to the couple who's offer we already accepted.
With a little luck all this business will be behind us soon and we'll be on our way to moving into a nice three bedroom/two bath house with a big back yard that's across town and across the street from some friends of ours. It's a nice older ranch style home that is "move in-able" now. The basement we can work on as we move along. It's finished in the sense it has electricity, concrete floors, plumbing, and a fire place and as time goes on we're going to add some walls and divide it up into a laundry area, a den, and a small kitchenette. We also plan to make a patio outside off the basement door. Of course all this is predicated on whether or not they decide to accept our offer. If they don't then we have some back up houses in mind.
Anyway, I'm glad we've got our place sold as quickly as we did.
