will you join us?

in the next couple days we should know how our preapproval ap is going to buy a house.

my van is on the fritz so were looking to trade our motorcycle in straight across for a used car, and we found a 2004 ford taurus with only 60k miles leather and every option available on it and the price is perfect! its just under what our bike values at! calling tomorrow about that!!

im entering my second trimester tuesday!
(im due july 19th)

and were going to pick out our wedding cake design on wexnesday! (wedding is sept 8th)

ahhh sooo much going on!!!hoping everything falls into place!!!

 

1. car- so the taurus was gone already. but we found a 2002 impala w/ only 29k miles on it, they were asking to omuch and even with negotiations and trade ins they wouldnt come off their price a penny! so still no new car but we are looking.

2. WE GOT OUR PREAPPROVAL BACK! we got approved for 85% of a 175k loan! BUT the 2 houses we were interested WENT UNDER CONTRACT before we heard back from bank! BUT we are going tonight to look at a 20 acre, 2600sq ft, 4 bed 2 bath, w/ a 40*60 concreted floor shop with electricity. Has a private lake! its a 2 story on a fully finished walk out basement! We are REALLY excited about this place!

Continue crossing your fingers!!

update 3/4

3. WE are reconsidering the car! we looke over our finances and we can afford the differenece between our trade ins and their required price. they are asking 9490 for a 10 yr old PERFECT condition impala that has 29k miles. WE have 8100 in trade in, and we are going to offer them 1000$ plus trades and see if they take it. If not, then we will walk away and keep looking.

4. We have found a house we love and we are going to submit an offer on it tomorrow! We ar starting it out a little low because there is a shed (huge shed) that is STOCK full of junk.. some of it being hazardous material. So we are going to negotiate clean up cost recovery into our offer. But it is very nice and has an unfiinished basement, the ad said fully finished but its not, someone striped it to the studs and redesigned it lol, which they never finished, which is ok cuz its  ahuge open space and we can redo it!

 

not sure if anyone cares anymore.. but we got teh impala.. we paid wayy to much for it, but i think in the long run the investment will be worth it. were going to sign the papers tonight, but we wont get to pick it up til monday when we can get the bike up here. Its in storage half hour away. and its 15 degrees.. gonna be a cold ride for my DF Mnday! lol

we put the offer in. we found out that the seller has some work they HAVE to do inorder to even be able to sell it because its not up to county codes, and this county is rather strict about it lol.. so well see what happens. THey had 3 showings today. Hopefully they were scared off by the junk barn and the sewer issue that the seller has to fix.. we want this house. Ill only update one more time.. and thats gonna be wether we get the house or not...
