Matt and I have been on pins and needles for a few days now. Our realtor said the house we bid on was listed at a CRAZY LOW price and it would probably go up by atleast $50,000 in bids. So we did not have our hopes up, but I have to say...I had "that" magical feeling! Since many people were away for the Thanksgiving weekend, it was a particularly slow time for showing houses. There were still 5 bidders by the end, and it was neck-in-neck between us and one other applicant. But a good plan combined with a GREAT real estate agent & bank lender and a heaping spoonful of luck all came together in just the right way and made it so that WE GOT THE HOUSE!!!!
