You got it, Joesfolk !!

My youngest son just closed the deal on his first home. It too was a sweet deal, and I was worried he'd never be able to afford a home here in California. I'm so happy for him and his new wife, and very happy he won't have to move far away from his Mama.
I'm praying hard for you too !!

Thanks so much everyone. We wanted to see the house once more before we made our offer. We arrived at the house and waited for our agent to show. While we were waiting three (yes, three) other agents showed up with their clients. So we went directly to the real estate office to make our offer and looked at the house again after that. We made an offer well above the asking price but still within our price range. We are hoping that we have offered enough to beat the other offers as the bank will be entertaining all offers. We won't know for a couple of weeks if we have been accepted or not. So please keep praying. This house meets most of our needs, especially the important ones. If we don't get this house then we will rest assured knowing that it just wasn't in the Lord's plan for us. Keep praying please!

I'll keep you in my prayers joesfolk. My DD and SIL got a great deal on a house a couple of years ago. The first house they bid on fell through and they were very disappointed but the next house turned out to be even better. UB has it right, if one door closes....

Making an offer above the asking price is a huge deal. I hope they accept it!

Now is the time to look for a house. Prices are real good.

Best of luck.

Still waiting to hear something. I know it's too early to expect an answer from the bank (It' a foreclosure owned by the bank.) but we offered so much over the asking price that I am hoping for an early, quick acceptance. I know I shouldn't wish my life away but I wish it were next week.
