My Fiance and I have been house hunting for about 4 months. Wed. we walked into a house and it immediately felt like home. We made an offer and the seller approved it in under 24hrs. Unfortunately it's a Short Sale, which is really all there is around here, so now we're at the mercy of the Bank. Man! We're sooo excited! Apartment living isn't bad but we currently have 800sq feet of living space and the home we're offering on is a 4/2 1700sq ft, fenced in back yard, has it's own well for sprinklers (which you can't drill here anymore), a nice screened in porch, a small pavilion, Childs swing set/playground, and a pool (luckily I'm a pool tech so I know how to handle them well). The house hasn't been recently updated but it's new enough where we can modify stuff with paint and new hardware. Also, the house has really good bones so we'll be able to do a lot with the floor plan, in time. We're avid DIY Network watchers so we've seen a lot of stuff we can do, just need to put it into practice. Almost forgot, there's a PERFECT! place in te step-down living room for a nice big tank :). I'll certainly update this thread with pics of the place once, hopefully, everything goes through and meets inspection. HAHA! Im so excited! HURRY UP BANK!
