Tuesday as house shopping day may become a thing of the past. Today we looked in Cambridge at a few houses and then on to a house in Guelph. We really liked the house in Guelph. In our price range every house has a “special feature.”
This one had the special feature of a really funky way into a very… interesting basement. You stood in the kitchen facing a bedroom via a little hallway. Then you opened a door and lifted up the floor. And voila! some stairs. Go down said stairs into the older basement. That is where the laundry is located. The stairs are quite… break neck however!
Anyhow that really intrigued my husband.
But there was some “traffic” on the house as we met a family leaving and one inside the house. Dh liked the house so much that he actually said right in the house, “Let’s put in an offer now.”
He then wanted to go in high because he was worried about the other people putting in an offer.
We left the house and he went to work which was very close considering how long he normally drives.
At Clare’s office, he suggested to actually go in lower. So I okayed this. We asked for a response by 9:30 tonight. We had one by 7 p.m. The price was just a bit over what DH wanted the offer to be initially. I managed to contact him at work, and we accepted the offer they made.
So there you have it. I kind of have the feeling of jinx about me, and I don’t want to say it yet, but I think we bought a house!
Prayers please! Now is time for the lawyers and such to do their jobs!
