Laverne House ~

I have not wanted to "jinx" our House Hunting, so I have not really been blogging about what is going on in this area. We have seen OVER 100 houses, and have put in about 10 offers. Last night we got AMAZING news... our offer was accepted. Actually they countered but the counter offer is in our favor.
This house is 2042 sq feet with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The kitchen is HUGE and there is a formal dinning room just off the kitchen and a regular dinning room in the kitchen. The first bedroom has built in cabinets PERFECT for an office or whatever you want. I would like to make it the play room personally. It also has a 3 car garage AND parking on the side for the boat or whatever else we want to get in the future. The backyard is PERFECT size ready for the kids to enjoy... it is located between Fowler and Armstrong and Bullard and Barstow, just south of Clovis High and Clovis Elementary. That means WALKING DISTANCE TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL! YES!!
This is the only picture I have of the house, but I will take more when we go and meet the inspectors. We are just praying that it passes the inspections and the appraisal goes well too. We feel like we have been looking FOREVER, and we have really tried to be patient. I have been holding out for a 4 bedroom with a big kitchen and Matt has been holding out for the access to the backyard. The only problem I have is that they put carpet in the master bathroom... REALLY? WHY carpet?? It just seams RETARDED to me! That will be the first thing we fix. It needs some updating in a bad way, but besides the old wall paper and linoleum floor in the kitchen I love it! It is in a PERFECT neighborhood! We have looked at houses before in this area and they were smaller and out of our price range so we are SO happy to catch this one. We went and saw it the first day it went on the market and we made an offer the next day. We have learned we just need to be first in line for when a screaming deal comes!!
I have to admit I am a little scared about owning a house again. We still own the condo, and I have anxiety about it all, but it is GOOD anxiety!! I hope things go well and we'll try to get more pictures up as soon as we KNOW it is ours...

It looks a lot like Brad's on the outside. It sounds perfect. GOOD LUCK!!! In which city are you? I'll pray for the condo to sell.

Love,

Keep us all posted on how things go. At least you and Matt are experts on laying tile after doing the condo...I still have nightmares featuring the spinning blade, gushing water and grinding. Glad I live far, far away...way too far to help. (Painting those cabinets sucked, but the place looked soooooo much better when we were done.)
