Making an Offer

August 24th, 2009 by Editor B

We are making an offer on a house today. I don’t want to reveal too many details for fear of jinxing things, so suffice it to say that it’s in Mid-City and we like it a lot.

It’s a predicated offer — our purchase of the new house is predicated on the successful sale of our current house. That’s the only way we can afford it. Tricky stuff, though I gather it’s fairly routine.

I am taking this week off to work on our house, doing little cosmetic things that I’ve been putting off for a while, to get it ready for market.

Here’s hoping this all goes smoothly.
