3. We put an offer in on a house
|for illustrative purposes only|
(house shown here has more rooms and more land)
The next morning, we toured the two houses. One wasn't anything special and they wouldn't even let us see the guest house. The other had some neat character, but it was going to need some serious work as much of it hadn't been touched in probably 30 or 40 years. And it was expensive.
But, we put an offer on it. The seller made us jump through a million hoops - including proving to their financial guy that we would be able to buy the house, providing more documents than we had to provide to our lender.
Between that process, the work that would need to be done and the price, we weren't quite feeling so confident about the process and wondered if we'd made a mistake.
So we put an offer in on another house. But more on that tomorrow.
