We bought a house today. If you've been following our occasional updates, it's none of the ones you may know about. This was a weird very sudden thing that popped up a few days ago. Not a short-sale, so we put an offer on it, and we got a response back today that it's ours. The house is empty, so we just need to wait for the paperwork stuff and for the previous owner (an investor) to own the house for 90 days before he can officially sell it. That puts us at March 15th 'til it can be ours (Okay, okay, it won't be ours. Lets be honest. That won't happen for years and years).
It's um . . . beautiful. 0.28 acres. Big back yard [Probably too much yard work -- yuck]. 3278 square feet total in the house. Unfinished basement, but its actually well on its way to being finished. The basement is mostly sheet-rocked already.
