The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
Excited and nervous
Today I decided to make an offer on the house I talked about earlier, the one on Fairhaven. I'm meeting with my realtor tomorrow to draw up the offer letter. We're going to look at some more places Sunday - partly for my peace of mind, and partly for backup. But there are no current offers on the table for Fairhaven right now, so I have a good shot.

Ever since I told Linda (my realtor) to go ahead with it, this afternoon, I've been having trouble concentrating. I keep thinking "I'm buying a fucking house! WTF?!" - and then I think about what could go wrong, hoping the inspection doesn't turn up any problems, hoping I'm making the right choice... I'm a ball of nerves.

I am: edgy
Current Media: office buzz

I kinda went through the process pretty dumbly. Never really noticed the "WTF" moment until it occurred to me that a bank had just loaned me a metric buttload of dollars that I was gonna have to pay back someday. Still, it's nice to have a house. I hope you enjoy yours.

Re: Houses!

JEEZUSS KEERIST! 700k! for a house! Where I'm at near Atlanta for 700k I can have a 6000sqft house on one of the lakes. I'm only spending about 300k to build a 4300sqft house on 10.5 acres on the river, about 1 mile from the lake (lake access). When I'm done we'll also have a detached 3 car garage with an upstairs apt, an 8 stall horse barn, 8 acres cleared and fenced, a two story deck, and whatever else I can put together in the budget (maybe a pool). I am so glad I didn't move to CA back in 96, I was there for 4 months while I went to school, and almost moved there. I have a sister that lives near San Diego, and her house is 3500sqft on 6 acres, clear, fenced, barn, workshop, pool, a ton of landscaping and other extras. They paid 250k for it back in the 80's. She could sell it for a fortune now, if she didn't have 1000 illegals going through her back yard every night. No one has been able to sell a house in her area because of that unfortunately.

Good luck with that, and I am sure everything will turn out fine :-)
