We made an offer on a house today!
Because it's a Friday and some of the paperwork has to be signed-off on by a relocation company that is aligned with the seller, we may not know definitively whether or not we have a contract until Monday. But, at this point, all of the verbal agreements have gone well... we just need that extra ink to be put on paper.
The house is in the same neighborhood as our current rental, which was one of our goals... Chloe's able to go to the same Elementary School, and we're able to stay in the neighborhood where we've made some great friends. Other perks of the house is that it is 2.5 years old and one-half block away from a new park that is being built. If all goes to plan, we'll close mid-May and probably move in late-May/early-June.
Hopefully, I'll post more news for you early next week.
