Well, we finally got a house!!! We are so excited! Our closing date isn't until April 27th, and then we leave for Vegas and Disneyland 2 days later, so we really won't get to move in until about the second week of May. It still needs some major deep cleaning and painting in every single room, but overall, it's in pretty good condition!
It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo in Eagle Mountain, and I love it! Once we get paint and furniture in and everything, I'll post pictures as soon as I can! Here are some pictures just from our realtor's website...

This is the living room/dining room. The arch is my favorite thing in the entire house!!!

This is our kitchen..I'm so excited to finally be able to move around and cook for Alex in this!

And this is the master bedroom..And like I said before, it needs a ton of painting!

For the last month or so, Alex and I have been looking into buying a condo. The $8,000 credit has been extended till the end of April, so we figured we'd take advantage of it while we can. And let me tell you, it is not a fun process!!!
We've been looking out in Eagle Mountain mostly. We just love the area out there and have a really good feeling of living out there. We've put three offers down on three different condos. The first one was a bank-owned one and it went to the highest and best bidder..which wasn't us.
The second one was great. In our price range, had everything we needed. And just like a lot of things, was too good to be true. Our offer got accepted, which was great! But turns out, the lady that owned it dropped her price too much, without thinking of all the closing things she would have to pay for, and it turned out it was considered a short sale, which are pains in the butt!
SO..We've put another offer in on another condo out there, and it's been the one I have loved the best. It needs major painting and putty work on the walls, but other than that it's in great condition. We're just waiting and waiting to hear back from the bank to see if we got it or not. Which patience really isn't a quality I posess... ha ha.
More to come on this subject when we hear more info!
