Things are starting to roll...

Celebrate good times, come on!!

Woohoo! Just got a call from C and his company finally made an offer on our house in Utah. We had agreed on a minimum price that we would accept from them. It roughly equated to what we purchased the house for plus the cost of the improvements we have done in the last 3 years--new roof, dishwasher, kitchen cabinets and fresh paint in all bedrooms and the kitchen. That way we would at least break even.

Get this. The offer from them came in at $13K more than our minimum. Granted, they want some deductions for things to get the house ready for FHA loan approval--new exterior paint, appliances (hehehe, we took all those), etc--but it's still WAY more than what we were figuring we would get.

Guess after all it really paid off to wait around for their offer!

Plus I found a house yesterday with real potential. It needs some new flooring in the kitchen and upstairs bathrooms, plus some finish work in the basement. It was nicely in our price range. This extra money would easily cover everything that I'd like to do.

Cel-e-brate good times, come on!
