So we have been house hunting for the last 4 months or so and we finally had an offer accepted on a house this week! It has been a long journey to get to this point, cleaning up our finances, finding a good lender, finding a good agent, and traveling all over Orange County in search of the perfect property. The market in our area is VERY competitive right now, houses are selling in 4 days (on average) and there are tons of cash buyers – meaning, people like us with conventional home loans don’t stand a chance. After putting offers in on 4 other houses we finally got accepted on this house:
It is a 1941 Bungalow in North Long Beach that was just “flipped” in October. It has some of the charm we were hoping for but all the nice amenities we wanted. The kitchen is my fave:
The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths and we offered at $340K, which is probably a little too much. This week we go through appraisal and home inspection so we will see how off our offer was from what the bank says market value is. It is pretty scary and exciting right now, we are day 25 of a 30 day escrow so we will know soon enough if this house will really be ours!
