We had another offer accepted on a house. This time our offer was competing with another, so we actually offered very slightly more than the asking price. Don’t ask us about the cost 😉 The house had been on the market an entire day, and there was more than one offer on the house! Realty is hot at the moment in Victoria and the ‘good’ ones go fast. There was a recent Times Colonist article about it, called ‘Real Estate Sales up 60 per cent’. We put a few subject to’s on the offer, and after a grueling week of work and thought, removed them all last Friday.

We now have a mortgage and debt, yippee! As funny as enjoying debt sounds we are looking forward to it. As some of you might know we have been looking since around Christmas time. Most weekends, and some evenings have been filled with viewings, we have probably seen about 40+ houses, and this house was our second house we made an offer on. I did enjoy the process, it was really interesting being able to see all those houses. But also I am glad we have found something and looking forward to no viewings. Move in day is the beginning of May.

We are not sure if we are currently able to stay in our current place until then, we are waiting to hear from the people we are subletting from if it is okay.

If you are a friend, you can see my private photos of our new house on my flickr site.
