    yea.. its definitely getting painted.. possibly new carpet in the bedrooms too..

    once i can get back inside.. i'll take more pics of the rest of the place..

    we're putting a $3k check to start escrow, but the bank is giving us $5k towards closing costs..

    congrats
    i just looked at 2 houses last week
    one was deemed to be in a 100 year flood plain, and the other got an accepted offer as soon as it hit the market
    the search continues

    how long were you looking?

    i've been looking for 4 months or so.. we've probably looked at about 30 houses.. we've found houses we really like.. but by the time we got to them they had offers pending already or there were better offers on them.. then there were shitholes..

    we've been waiting on a reply for another house.. but i was a short sale and we were going on 2 months w/o a response to our offer

    i'm the most impatient person you could meet.. hahah.. while we were waiting to hear back we were still looking.. so its no big deal.. if we didnt find anything by the time they responded, we'd take it.. but we found something before they did.. so i'll pass.. haha

    congrats man! looks like you might need to add a bathroom later on down the road. 4 people and 1 shower is not cool.

    deosnt that make it 2 bathrooms? so you have a shower and and a shitter right? that should make a full bathroom. .5 a bath is when its only the toilet and no shower.

    ah its a 4 part system
    toilet
    sink
    shower
    bathtub

    toilet and sink = 2/4
    toilet sink and shower = 3/4
    1/4 bath refers to an area with a sink between the master bedroom and bathroom off the master
    like you see in most hotels where someone can brush their teeth while you're taking a shower
