Well we are about to put an offer on a place! :) It is 3 bedroom end unit semi attached condo, finished basement, lots of storage, laundry room, big kitchen, big living room.

Wanna know something awesome? I can get all new kitchen appliances, new gas stove, new fridge, new dishwasher........... YAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Asking price is 124,900. We are going to offer about 116,000 and meet them in the middle hopefully around 120k. Compared to other units in the area, this is lower priced, needs no work done (condo fees take care of windows, roof, lawn, etc) and definately meets our needing more room in the future ;)

We are just waiting for the call so we can go to the office and start the paperwork.

Man, someone is practicing a trumpet or tuba or something down the street, it's echoing EVERYWHERE and it's sooooooo annoying.. they are AWFUL!

That sounds great Saphellae! The condo that is, not the tuba! Prayers for the lowest price you can get. Be sure to post pictures!

Way to go, Saph! I will certainly be praying for your deal. We just bought a townhouse a couple of years ago and it was around the same price range here on the west coast. Even though it was 20 years old and needed a bit of work, it was much better than the money pit we owned previously. But that Money Pit's land got us enough to buy this one mortgage free, pay out the other mortgage AND credit card debt, and even have a little left over for most of the needed work.

With all that is going on in your life right now, this will be great for you!

Good news, the offer was accepted, but there is someone who offered before us, although they haven't met one condition - to sell their house first. So, after we get all of our ducks in a row by the end of this week, they will have 24 hours to decide if they want to keep BOTH houses until they sell theirs... so chances are in our favor! They got full price because the first offer was, but it's okay, because we bargained in the appliances :) I'll get my gas stove, just not right away.

If all goes well we will have a home by the end of November! woo!

Congrats Saph! You have a much better chance than the other buyer with the contingency.

When we bought our second house we thought our first would sell within a few weeks. Wrong. It took us nearly 5 years to sell.

Saph, I haven't read thru all the threads........did you get a licensed inspection on your home? Don't want to be a downer here but I don't know what the laws are if there are any in Canada. In the states the prospective owner pays for a licensed inspector (you don't have to have one if you don't want to) and he or she can make recommendations which you then can take to the owner (eg....fix the leaky roof, replace the heater, etc) actually they are well worth the investment.......once you sign those 500 documents the house is yours to deal with for life......unless the owner has misrepresented problems (flooding)

No worries there expat. the home inspection is scheduled for today and everything will be checked thoroughly. Buyer pays for the home inspection as it is the buyers decision to get one.
