We got the golf course home!
It was a nerve-wracking 24 hours. The sellers counter-offered, which we just flat out declined because it was out of our budget, and then they came back again with another counter-offer we could afford. After much discussion, we decided to accept. We ended up spending a little more than we wanted – but this was truly a home we could see ourselves in forever. They ended up coming down almost $40k from their asking price. We felt very fortunate that we were able to come to a mutual agreement on the home.
This goes to show you that if there is something you really want go for it! If it doesn’t work out, then at least you tried – but if it does work out you won’t have any regrets! If we had just went with the home in our budget, we would have been settling and would have always wondered “what if”?
Now that we have spent all our money on a new house 🙂 we are going to work on getting furniture thrift-style.
