Making an offer...

So as I stated in the last update, I am "taking the plunge", and buying a house. I think I have found the perfect house and am ready to make an offer on it. I go tomorrow to fill out all the paperwork that goes with making the offer and what not. This is a really big time in my life, and I must say that I am really excited & happy, even if it does scare the crap out of me. :)

Its a 2 bedroom, 2 bath manufactured HUD home of about 1000 sq. ft. in a really nice small subdivision on the north side of Albuquerque. It’s near Alameda / Paseo Del Norte & I-25, so I will have quick interstate access and it’s just a straight shot down I-25 to the office. It’s only about one mile more then my current drive to the office so that’s really nice. There is a lot of commercial in the area so, so that is a nice plus. Also we found out yesterday that the $85 homeowner’s association fee also covers my water, sewer, trash, and use of the pool and community building (which has an indoor basketball court and indoor racket ball court).

I should find out on Monday or Tuesday (if I have read everything right) if I got the house or not. So keep your fingers cross for me :) Also if I do end up getting the house, once I get all moved in and settled and stuff, I will have a major house warming party. So now I have to start thinking of the logistics of all of this (phone, power, internet, mail, and so on). Also I have to start thinking of the fact that I am going to move. That’s going to be fun....LOL. Well it will not be bad, and it’s only like 3 miles from my Apartment to the new place, so just lots of trips back and forth I guess.

Well I guess that is all for now. I will keep you all posted on if I get the home, and then where we go from there. Yep Yep.
