With a little budgeting and belt-tightening we realized that we could afford a house payment. As many of you know that was a huge goal for this year. We are finally ready to settle down for a while. We need more room for the kids to run and play. We have been looking for a place. We found the perfect house and put a bid in on it yesterday. This morning we got a call from the realtor saying that there were multiple offers and we should decide what our best offer was. We told her and she said she’d let us know soon. We found out this evening that our second bid was accepted. With that the house buying process has begun! Next up is contract completion and home inspection.
