XP AW: FI and I bought a house!

FI and I made an offer on a BRAND NEW house Sunday night.  The builder countered, we countered back, they countered again, and we accepted.  They are paying all closing costs, giving us a refrigerator, washer, and dryer, changing the bi-fold doors in the laundry area to french doors at their expense, and giving us a $750 furniture certificate.  Closing is estimated to be May 19.  AAAAAAH!  I'm so excited!

    Thanks!  And that's awesome that it's your birthday, Thea!  My birthday is this Saturday so I've been joking with people that it's my early birthday present, lol.

    When we buy a new house next July, I'm totally calling you.  How in the world did you manage a washer and dryer?  All FI got with the current house was the appraisal and closing costs!

    Oh, and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

    When your realtor is the number 2 realtor in Mobile county - and she happens to be your FMIL - good things happen.  ;-)  But really Mitchell Homes was having a "Spring Break Special" and the washer/dryer/refrigerator/closing costs were part of the deal if you offered asking price - which we did.
