An Offer!!!!


Big news, guys! We have an offer on our house. And it's a pretty good one. Fourty-seven (?) days later and lots of house cleanings later... I know not to get TOO excited, but it's tough to not be a bit energetic and enthusiastic about this.

Here are some of the details (from our agents):

  • November 19th close date (quick closing)

  • She wants to take possession of the home at the closing table

  • 12 day due diligence is her right to inspect and cancel for any reason (14 days is average)

  • We have until 9pm tonight to respond Special Stipulations

  • She wants a Home Warranty

  • She wants the home professionally cleaned three days prior to closing
  • They want you to provide a clean and clear termite inspection letter (minimal cost) at the closing table. In the event that the termite company finds termites, they want you to treat it (very reasonable)

Special Exhibits:

  • She is an FHA buyer and has an FHA exhibit for us to look at. That means that her loan is subject to FHA requirements. The FHA appraiser is also an inspector. He/she will be looking for certain things that qualify a home for FHA approval. I don’t anticipate your home lacking any pertinent features that would deny FHA approval so I don’t think this is anything for you to be concerned with. In the event that you did not have something that the FHA appraiser/inspector required, the buyer is asking you to spend up to $500 fixing, replacing, or installing the item(s).

  • Lead Based Paint Disclosure (standard)

  • County Plumbing Disclosure (standard in our county)

This is fantastic news. Dan is talking with our agents now about final details (we haven't accepted just yet). Now my fingers, toes and legs (and eyes!) will be crossed for a solid inspection and no surprises at closing.

There is a cute 3/2 across the street from me. Too similar in size to the house you are leaving? Let me know and I can send you the details. Quiet street, just outside Decatur city limits, so low taxes. Been on the market for about 3 weeks.

Naomi, send the info for sure!

How's your reno going? Well, I hope!

MLS #: 2753021 - just in case the link does not work.

Our drawings have been submitted for permits and we should have those by next week! The demolition/construction process is about to begin!

You could also buy across the street from our new house:
