Steph and I have been looking at houses lately. It started out with curiosity -- we drove by a house for sale that had a porch Steph liked, and we wondered what it looked like inside, so we called my real estate agent and asked to see it. I told her to be prepared for an extended casual house hunt. I looked at 115 houses in the search for my current house, and I had no reason to believe this process would go any differently. Besides, we weren't ready to move.
Then we found it. The third house we looked at. THE house. It meets all of our needs except one (it has only a 1 1/2-car garage and we wanted two) and most of our wants.
After much discussion, we decided to go for it. We wrote an offer on Monday night, received a counteroffer yesterday, and accepted today. The inspection is next week.
Know anyone who wants to rent a cute three-bedroom Cape Cod?
