House update
I made an offer yesterday for 280k on an asking price of 300k - Mike (seller) countered with 290k, I countered with 286.5k, he said 290k firm - so, sold. I agreed to 290k. So it looks like I have a house, pending the inspection and all.

Congrats!

I highly recommend Paul Cornell home inspections for your inspection.

Dude, score. Now you can deal with all the problems of renting a home, without the advantage of being able to call the landlord to fix it!

Oh, and I hate you for being able to buy a home for less then I would pay for a 2bdrm condo. :)

I'm pretty handy with tools, so I'll probably be doing my own work. :-)

I hear your pain. The cheapest 2BR condo in my zip code is $260K and is in the worst building in the worst area of the whole zip code. The cheapest non-ghetto place to live is $320K and it's a 2+1.75 fifth-floor walkup condo. We walked past a house just listed, 3BR 1BA 1040 sqft, no pool, no hot tub, no sprinklers, no nothing, for $500K.
