Offer in

We put an offer in on a house just outside of town here.  Its a nice big house with 5 acres, a barn, pastures, hayfield...its really just lovely.  We offered 85% of what they are asking for so come Monday we'll get an idea on if they are interested in negotiating.  Fingers crossed!


  1. Sounds like a great place! I love your blog background, by the way.

  2. I couldn't resist the background...I'm so ready to get my hands dirty this year!

    We'll hear back on the house tomorrow, I keep hoping they'll answer early.

  3. Awesome!! I hope it works out for you!!! Have you heard anything yet?? Have you thought about using your 9 acres as forested land?

  4. We did hear back, its not great. We bid at 85% of their asking price and asked for some repairs and they returned with only a few grand shaved off and no repairs. We were really hoping they would come down a lot more. I think we will counter but first look at another house.

    Using our 9 acres as forested land would probably be ok if we owned it outright but since we make a monthly payment on it, it really needs to be useful now. We have heard someone say they are interested in buying it so that could work out well.
