Our offer was accepted on a house!

Recommended Posts

I'm trying not to get too excited, but our offer was just accepted on a beautiful house we wanted!! It's a short-sale, so it still needs to go through a BOA (broker's opinion of appraisal) and the bank has to approve the appraisal amount. There are so many shortsales in Southern CA right now, so we feel very positive that the bank will rather accept than go into forclosure because that's been happening with most of the homes in this specific area. The house sold in 2005 for $700,000 and we offered $480,000, can you believe that?!

 

We put an offer on a house a few months ago and it fell out of escrow because the buyers didn't disclose a major issue with the house, so I hope everything goes well with this one!

 

I don't have any pics at the moment, but I will try to get some as soon as possible. But here some of the specs of the house-

 

Built in 2003, located in Corona

End of a cul-de-sac

11,700 sq ft lot and home is 3,600 sq ft

3 car garage

Rock pool and jacuzzi

Covered outside patio w/ full outside kitchen (sink, BBQ, fridge, etc.)

5 bedrooms, 3 baths

formal dining and living room, family room

additional living room upstairs

 

The house just needs a few cosmetic repairs (replace carpet upstairs, fresh paint) but other than that it's great! I hope the inspection and appraisal go well!!

 

Please keep you fingers crossed for us because we have worked very hard saving for this dream house!!! Geez this is a big month, I find out I'm pregnant and get a house all within a few weeks! I hope everything works out!! It's so difficult not to let your emotions take over you!!

Good luck good luck good luck! Fingers are crossed! Just be patient if you can :) - I had an offer in on a short sale in San Diego and it was accepted but it was taking too long so I backed out

Oh that is SSSSOOOOO exciting!!!! I am so crossing fingers for you! It sounds - size wise and amenities similar to the one we are hoping to get here in SC - but our house has to sell before we can close any deals of our own. ;-(

 

Keep us posted and I can't wait to see PICS!!!!

 

And CONGRATS on your pregnancy! I am jealous of you all around!!!!

Good luck!! We are sort of in the same boat as you when it comes to the waiting game on a house we are trying to buy! It is so hard not to get excited :)
