U/C stands for...

UNDER CONTRACT!

We are excited to share that we're "under contract" on one of the homes I blogged about this month. The negotiation process was a little stressful and full of ups and downs, yet somehow we came out on top. Can you guess which house it is?

Click here and see if you guessed right.

So, needless to say, we're very excited... yet nervous about the inspection process. The house is being sold "as-is," so we're crossing our fingers for a good inspector. If all goes as planned, we'll close on February 25. This is good timing, as we'll have our apartment until February 28 and can move in little-by-little. We're trusting the fantastic folks over at The Peters Company to finish us through the buying process.

This house has great bones, a fantastic location, lots of space -- most everything we'd hoped for in our next place. As I told my parents, this isn't a "next five years" house, it could be a forever house.

So what to do first? See if we can refinish the hardwoods for a reasonable price? Put some (temporary) laminate over that bathroom carpet? Grill out on the screened-in porch (okay, maybe grilling inside a screened-in porch isn't such a great idea...?).
