The past week has been a complete whirlwind. As I shared on Monday, we put in an offer on a townhouse Saturday morning, and found out Monday afternoon that not only were the sellers not going to counter offer like we had been told on Sunday they’d planned to do, but they decided to pull their house off the market altogether. Preston and I immediately felt defeated, and felt as though we were back at square one with our house hunt. After spending the past month devoting much of our time to this house hunt, to say we were disappointed is an understatement.
Then yesterday through a series of e-mails back and forth with our realtor about how we wanted to proceed and where we wanted to look next, she shared that the listing agent of a house that we saw about two weeks ago had contacted her to inquire as to whether or not we were still interested in the house. Long story short, we hadn’t been ready to commit to putting in an offer on this particular house. The weekend we saw this house we had seen a different one that at the time we were more interested in but never wound up putting an offer in on. We’ve been comparing many of the houses we’ve seen in the past two weeks to this one, and we started thinking that there has to be a reason why we keep coming back to this house.
So Tuesday night we decided to put in an offer on this house, and we found out yesterday afternoon that they accepted our offer! After stressing about whether or not we’d find a new house and be able to close on it before our lease ends in July, its a bit surreal to know that things are (hopefully) starting to fall into place.
We’re trying to not get too attached to the house until after the home inspection, which is scheduled for Tuesday evening. In the meantime, we’re excited about the fact that we’re (hopefully) one step closer to purchasing our first home!
Thank you for everybody’s virtual support! I promise I’ll have pictures to share soon, but as of now the only pictures I have are the MLS ones, and for our privacy and protection I won’t be sharing that link here on the blog.
