House Update and Opinions Please! PIP

So, we looked at the house again tonight with my parents and everyone loves it and there is only one little thing my mom noticed. So, as long as we can get our pre-approval this week, we are putting in an offer this weekend! :)

So now I am thinking of what I want to do to the house... Paint mostly and I am start with the front. It currently has a hunter green front door and shutters. I am not particularly a fan of hunter green. So here are what BF and I like so far... What do you guys think looks best?

    I thought about red, but since there isn't an entry I want the door color to go with a slate blue or ice blue living room... But I agree red is a great door color!

    I voted for option 1, love the black shutters. But I second the suggestion for a red door... maybe red door and black or gray shutters. I think red would go with a blue living room just fine, esp if the living room is slate.

    I love #1. The grey and the black look really nice against your brick color. Make sure there is no HOA or any neighborhood ordinances before you get painting though. Sometimes you have to get things like this approved ahead of time!

    [QUOTE]I voted option one. I'm going to be a total buzzkill here and also suggest that you stop thinking of home improvements before you are pre-approved and your offer is accepted. I KNOW how hard that is; I've been through the homebuying process. BF kept warning me not to get too attached to properties until the offer was accepted -- and even then, things can go wrong with inspections, etc. -- but I didn't listen and was crushed when the first house we wanted fell through after inspection. We ended up in a wonderful place, but I learned my lesson. Sort of like not pre-planning a wedding before an engagement...try not to pre-plan your house before your offer is accepted and a closing's been set!

    Liv, I was thinking the <em>exact</em> same thing and I didn't want to be the one to say it.

    I think Option 1 is best, but you really really really should listen to Liv's advice and not pre-plan for your house. It's a lot like pre-planning a wedding, or pre-planning for a baby.

    I agree with Liv. 

    I had tons of things I wanted to do to my house. However, once you know what issues your house has then priorities can change. Give yourself some time before rushing into a home improvement.
