At the end of the week last week, as I gazed at the upcoming weekend with no exciting plans to speak of, I was concerned there would be no inspiration for an early week blog post this week. I was wrong.
As part of our continuing house search, we toured a few homes Saturday, decided to lob an offer at one of them Sunday, had the offer accepted, and almost exactly 13 months after The Wife and I said “I do”, we had signed a contract to purchase a home.
It has been less than 24 hours since we received the news of the accepted offer, but already I have learned an immense amount about the inspection process, the mortgage process, and in some respects, the true character of some individuals seeking business deals.
Obviously, the contingencies of the contract have yet to be satisfied, but the process has begun in earnest and the closing date is set. Baring any major complications, before long there should be a whole lot more projects for me to track the progress of on this blog. Once the transaction is finalized I will release more details about the house, as I am sure the process of customizing the home to our unique personalities will dominate the content here for quite some time. For now though, I need to call some home inspectors.
