Quite the turn of events since my last blog post.
My work trip to Atlanta went well. I was hanging out at the airport last night waiting for boarding time on my flight home. My phone was about to die so I plugged it into a nearby wall. My flight was starting to board so I went to collect my phone and noticed that I had about five missed calls from Nate.
Now, every SINGLE time he has called me in the last week, I have immediately thought about the house. But after MANY false alarms, I did not think "house" when I saw him calling. Last night, I thought something had happened to Maggie.
I called him back as I was boarding the flight.
"THE BANK GAVE US A COUNTEROFFER!!!!!!!"
I was shocked.
Our gut instinct was to take it but we decided to talk about it when I got home.
We discussed, called our realtor and he came over late last night to do the paperwork.
We now are trying to schedule a home inspection. Basically we will have a home inspection on the home we purchased and then the buyer of our current home wants one as well. We have a SHORT time frame to get these done - by 9/6 - as stipulated on the offer on our current house.
Provided all goes well with the inspections, we close on the morning of 9/29 on our current house and then immediately close on our next house.
Here is a sneak peak of our almost-new home:
September promises to be a crazy month for us!
