Made the offer! Now, we wait.

It is an exhilarating feeling to place an offer on what could be your prospective home. As logical and mature as we are both trying to be about it, it’s difficult not to make this an emotional process. I can’t help but decorate the entire space in my mind and even think of the kids rooms in the future. With 2 good schools in the area, and a new one being built just a block away, it’s exciting to think that we have some colorful options to choose from! There is something about this entire thing that gives you an adrenaline rush, endorphin spike and a tummy ache all at once!

The “offer process” went something like this:

1. We contact realtor and make the offer.

2. Realtor comes back to us and gives us the counter-offer.

3. We sleep on this for one night before we decide to react.

4. We make final offer, contingent upon a few last minute details we decide to include.

Now, we wait.

Beau and I drove by the place after making our offer. Each time I go by I fall a little more in love with it.


About Maya

I like words like "labyrinthian," "kerfuffle," and "serendipitous" because they're mellifluous. I love poetry, pumpkin ales, sangria, long summer days, Fall foliage, going out of my way to step on crunchy leaves in October, live music, Jazz, Salsa dancing, theater, film (foreign and indie), the arts (myriad varieties), dance (in theory and practice) and any place where I can sit outdoors and take it all in.
