After six very long days of waiting for an answer and submitting and re=submitting our offer the bank ACCEPTED ours.
A little background, we placed an offer late Friday knowing that there was an offer placed that the bank had countered the it had not been answered. Late Tuesday afternoon we got a call from the bank that owns the house and they stated that they had received multiple offers on the house so they wanted any interested parties to submit there offer Wednesday and they would take the highest offer at the close of business Wednesday. After some digging we found out that it was just us and the other people so we just re submitted our original offer. Today at 3 we received the call that our offer was the highest and we had got the house. It turns out we offered $1,000.00 more than the other people but it was more!
This is Dave and I's first house so it's a huge deal for us. We are so excited to finally be living the American Dream and buying our own house. I am also really excited about the house because it has so much room and it's in an area we really like.
So now we have tons of packing to do and we will have some painting that needs to be done in the new house but it will be so worth it!
