Teaser Answered

We put a bid on a house.

Just to clarify: we already have a house. Well, to be fair Wade has a house. He bought it before we met. It's small (very small) but we intended on staying here for at least a few more years. But friends of his family have a gorgeous house, and they intended on selling in a few years. Wade mentioned to the friend to let us know when they're listing. Well, they changed their mind and listed this year! So they let us know ... and we put a bid on the house.

Our main condition is sale of our house, so our house is now listed. It'll be on the Canadian real estate website tomorrow and we'll have an open house on the week-end.

Our biggest problem developed today: a house very similar to ours listed today, too. Same price, appears to be the same size, same / similar set-up (from the pictures) but they have a finished basement (and we do not). Mind you, our neighbourhood always sells quickly ... but still, it's kinda scary.

I'll keep you updated! And I think I'd best start a non-wedding blog for all my random thoughts like this one.

P.S. Once our house is listed on the website, I'll show you our house!

Thanks! Our offer is accepted, so the house is ours. Now we have just under 2 months to sell our house.

Today was the first full day it was on the market, and we had 2 showings. So here's hoping!
