    I am so freakin' excited/nervous/happy, all at the same time. :woot: This house is about 2100 square feet (twice as big as where we are now), has a great pool, LOTS of storage, and is in a wonderful neighborhood. The master bathroom is amazing. I would post a few pictures, but the ones online don't even do the house justice. It's listed for 185,000, but we offered 175,000 with them leaving all appliances and paying closing costs. We gave them until Tuesday to respond to our offer. Wish us luck!

    Thanks guys!

    Missy - If you'll help move, you're more than welcome to swim!

    Jem - Good luck to you too! It's so nerve-wracking! If I were in your market, there's no way we could afford anything. But, then again, I'm sure there are some major perks to your city that rural ole' Mississippi ain't got! :)

    Sure STG, no problem!

    I just heard from our realtor, and they counter-offered for $180,000. We've still got to read over the details to make sure they didn't object to anything else, but we're probably going to take it. It's $5,000 less than what he listed it for, and it's move in ready. We're SO excited. Now we've just got to finish pushing the mortgage paperwork through and we'll be homeowners! :woot:
