Take it or leave it

Bidding war…

Putting in an offer

No one said buying your first home was easy and this step in the process was such an emotional roller-coaster.  The actual process of even putting an offer in on a house is pretty complicated, you have to put earnest money down, come up with all different kinds of dates from when your loan will be approved to when your closing would be all while you have no idea if your offer will even be accepted on a house that you have only seen once.

We ended up in a bidding war…  After a couple of rounds back and forth the sellers ended up asking both parties involved for our best and final offers – this was not fun.  Mark and I both agreed upon a number and relayed it to Mary.  The second we hung up the phone we started second guessing ourselves; did we go to low we could have gone higher, is this the best house for us, are we even ready to move, can we really afford a house, what about the lease on our apartment.
