3 seen, 2 offered

So we saw 3 more homes this evening when running around with Patrick (our real estate agent). Two of them we liked enough to place offers on.

The first home that we placed an offer on was exactly the same model as our first offer, but it was down the street about 5 houses. We underbid, and aren't expecting to get it.

The second home that we saw and placed an offer on is shown above, and is on Cove Lane in Discovery Bay.

View a photo gallery of it here.

About the home:
* 1 story
* 3 bdr, 2 bath
* 2 car garage
* 1750 square feet
* Some hardwood floors

We liked the layout, and the separate breakfast nook and dining area a lot. The master suite was very big, which was great, but (and my photos didn't show this) it didn't have a bathtub. We figure if it ever bothers us enough we can re-do the bathroom. The 2nd bathroom does have a bathtub though, if it comes to it.

So, two offers, we're rooting for the second offer more. But the first is a great house too and we wouldn't mind living there at all.

Keep your fingers crossed!

The house looks like it is in very good condition. We like it a lot.

It is 2:00pm on Friday afternoon and I am going crazy waiting to hear about the house. I hope, I hope, I hope. I wasn't too attached to the other homes, but now I really want this one.

Congratulations, Shandrew, on your new house (home, actually!). It's beautiful and we know you'll make it even more a home. You're both talented in the artistic and home improvement areas, so it will bear your own personalities. Isn't house hunting stressful? We bid on the last house we saw one day. We were getting tired out, and it was the second day of all day hunting, but we really did love it. Maybe the realtor saved the best until last. But it just called to us. We hope the inspections come through with flying colors, and everything goes through snickery snack. Good luck and many years of happiness there.

Love,
Paula and Paulie and of course, Corky the Red
