Aaron and I put an offer in for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo yesterday.
It was listed at 84,500 and we offered 80,000 plus asked the seller to pick up closing costs. We also included a $2000 Earnest Money deposit to express we are sincerely interested.
Hopefully we will have an answer back later today if our offer is accepted or countered.
Here is a link to details and photos of the property:
It is 1314 sq. ft. The estimated mortgage plus the community HOA fee is about $700.
Currently we are in a 960 sq. ft. 1 bed 1 bath apartment and pay $930 plus an additional bill for monthly water, sewage and trash removal.
Those costs are in our HOA.
We'd have an extra $200 a month for BABY!
UPDATE!!!! When I go to my Agents website it says the property is no longer on the market... That is either a good thing (did they accept!!!?!?!?) or a bad thing (someone beat us to it...)
The fact that it is suddenly no longer on the market the day after our offer was made should be a good thing right?
If we don't get it, we're back to looking and looking.
