Buying a New House

Today, for the first time in over thirty years, I made an offer on a house. Herman and I found a sweet little home in central Palm Springs that is a perfect living space for us. We love everything about it. We've been back four times to check it out, and with each viewing, we loved it more. So today we scrawled out signatures on a offer. We bid 75K less than the owners were asking, so there is no guarantee they will accept. However, our agent is very optimistic.

So if all goes well, Herman and I could be in a new home and a new city for the holidays.

Moving into a new home can be a daunting but exciting task. Although there are a lot of things to be done including packing all your stuff, and taking care of the utility bills, etc., the anticipation will get those nerves moving. I can see that you thoroughly checked the place by going there four times. It’s very important, though. It’s better to be sure about the overall condition of the house. Right, Alan?
