We are so excited! DH flew to Ohio Monday, looked at a bunch of houses, put in an offer Monday night, got a verbal approval early Tuesday morning, all papers signed that night, home inspection done Thursday, and he flew back to Cali Friday.

Our new home is in North Olmsted and we get to move in June 14. The next 6 weeks are probably going to take forever and all we can think of is all of the minor improvements we will need to do the first few days befor the movers deliver our household goods. We plan to strip all of the ugly wall paper, rip up the carpet, sand, stain & seal wood floors, and put in a fence in the back yard. We will also need to find a babysitter and or some day labor to help get it done quicker as DH has to start back to work on the 21st.

Did I say that we are really excited?!!!

How exciting! Congratulations. You will have to post pics of the house for us.

I love house hunting. It was my favorite part of the house buying experience.

We bought a fixer upper, too, but we didn't have any rush to do stuff. It will be 3 years in May and we are still working on stuff. LOLOLOL

Here is a picture of the front of our house.. It's a 4bed 2.5 bath. Can't wait to get out of Cali.

How does this place compare to Cali? Is it bigger or more expensive for a smaller house? Cheaper? We you guys surprised at how the houses looked here versus out there?
