We're buying house!
After months of searching online and two Sundays walking through a dozen houses, we found The One. It's a little farther away from some family members than we originally planned, but its closer to others. And the commute is just a few miles farther for both of us.
This morning, after working an overnight shift, I met our realtor and the home inspector. First off, not the best choice for me since I didn't get much of a nap on Sunday, but it needed to be done and with Christmas and New Years right around the corner we were pretty limited on times we could do it. The inspection came back pretty good with just a few things that need attention, so we'll talk to our realtor about that in the coming days. Luckily the house has a bunch of upgrades and decent paint in most rooms so we only need to do a few things to make it ours. If all goes as planned (which it probably won't) we are scheduled to close at the end of January!
Here are some pictures I took while in the house today:
