How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy

Well, that was sudden

Last week, we noticed a listing for a property that was interesting. Our sort of place, from the pictures. Not perfectly located, but well located for us. It's one mile from all the little shops we like, and closer to even some of the other shops we like. Near a park, on a quiet, quiet street.

We saw an open house on Sunday, got a buyer's agent and saw it again on Monday night, went back to her office, wrote up an offer, and submitted it. It was accepted today. So… we're buying a house, in Shadyside. 2BR, 1.5 bath. The first floor is a gorgeous open plan space. Kitchen is brand new; the stove has never even been used. A new patio was installed. Furnace, hot water, all new. The upstairs isn't quite as nice, but certainly nice enough. The washer and dryer are antiques and will need to be replaced.

It's not under contract with us yet; we need the realtor to bring over some paperwork. Tomorrow I'll try and hire an inspector, and then we'll work on getting the mortgage. We're excited, and a little trepidacious.
