We had to barter back and forth multiple times, but in the end - the seller came down to what we were asking! And he agreed to all the 'extra' terms - paying for closing, our home warrant and up to 1,000 on home repairs from the inspection. We are signing the contract tonight and I am taking it by the Realtor's office in the morning.
Our closing date is January 29. We want to paint before we move in and the den still has paneling on it that we are planning on ripping out and dry walling before we move in all of our stuff. I have no idea when we will actually move in, but I would much druther work on the house without stuff to move around. And Charlie and Kerri aren't kicking us out yet, so we are under no time line.
There are still alot of steps to complete before we get to hold the house keys in our hands, and I know that there is still the possibility that something may go wrong or not work out - but that is ok cause I am just taking it one day at a time and thanking God for how far we have come.
