Update on the house...

We were thinking that perhaps we bidded too low, so we called our realtor (Hi Bob!!) and asked how we go about upping it. He called the realtor for the house who said "Tell them not to worry about it. Yours is the only bid I submitted to the bank - the others had FHA loans or were lower. Should get an answer from the bank tomorrow."

Woohoo! Not that I'm getting my hopes up or anything... Here are a few more pictures for you though.
A very loooong driveway, which leads to a dead end street. There are only 3 more houses off to the left before the street ends.

An older and very dirty pool. We'll have to rent a sump pump to drain it into the creek that runs behind the back fence, then get in there with large broom brushes and scrub it down. Anybody have teenagers that would be willing to tackle that one?

The house is a U shape, this is the back courtyard. I don't know what's with the multi-colored concrete sections. Any teenagers want to learn how to run a jackhammer? We're thinking that this will all be jackhammered out, put in a nice stamped patio, maybe a patio cover. If you turn around, you would see the pool.

Well, that's it for now. I'll keep you posted as soon as we hear from the bank! Pray hard!!!
