After looking again at a home we previously viewed, we decided to go ahead and make an offer on it. The big drawback was the backyard, which appeared to be very small. We drove by the house Saturday and started wondering where the property lines really were. Our realtor emailed us aerial photo’s of the lot with the lines marked and we were very happy to see that the lot is MUCH larger than we originally thought. This makes a huge difference.
Again, we are a long way from home ownership, and while hopeful the current owner will accept our offer, we are doubtful that they will. I will write more in the blog very soon if they do in fact accept the offer, or counter with a reasonable deal. We still have to get past FHA appraisal, which from what we understand can be very difficult.
