As we drove up the road I was already smitten - it was quiet neighbourhood surrounded by lots of trees. Neighbours waved as we drove past them. As we walked through the front door, I had a good feeling about this house. We had finished the tour of the house and we were discussing how much we liked it, when I looked out the window and I saw the deal closer - a little pond, just the right size for Little Miss L. to learn how to skate. That was it, we had to have this house!
The hubby and I decided to put an offer in. As we were leaving the realtor asked us if we wanted to wait in the driveway to see if they accept our offer. Of course we would wait, but we didn't know that it would be one long hour sitting outside during a snowstorm. As we sat there in the cold, we wondered if we were crazy for putting an offer in so fast. The hubby and I like to analyze and go over every little detail and what we just did was way out of our comfort zone. As the realtor approached us it didn't look good. He explained to us that ourselves and another offer had been similar and the owners were having a hard time deciding. We told our realtor to get back in there and work his magic because we needed that house and that is exactly what he did... he stepped out of the house 5 minutes later with the wonderful news that they accepted our offer! We still can not believe that within a period of 5 hours we became homeowners!
Our closing date is still some time away, but the excitement is already building with all the things I can't wait to do...let the decorating begin! We can't wait to make this house our home :)
