I'll Give You This Signed Paper, You Give Me a House

So... I maybe put in an offer on a house last night.

This could be me soon (minus the super-hot wife...)
We'll know by 5 pm today if I get it, or if they counter-offer, or whatever the scoop is.

I'm so nervous/excited/antsy/stoked right now.

Update: Oh snap! I got it! Time to hand over earnest money and get the paperwork signed, because I. am. a. HOMEOWNER!

Second Update: The deal has crashed and burned, because the home inspector found lots of things that needed to be fixed, and the seller wasn't willing to either fix anything or reduce the selling price. So it's back to the drawing board and finding a different place. Boo.


  1. I'm getting the inspection on our house TODAY. Buying a house makes me so NERVOUS! In a good way...
    Good Luck on your offer/ordeal.

    1. Good luck to you, too, Sarah! Crazy to think we've reached this point in our lives, eh?

  2. Wow! You are REALLY a grown-up now!

    I'm working on refinancing my place, and it seems to be more of a hassle than the initial purchase was. Good luck, Aaron. I'm excited for you, and excited to see the new place. I hope you get it!

  3. Okay, so this is what i do for a living and SLC is one of my markets, so if you need help with ANYTHING (financing, inspector, contractor recommendations..even a locksmith to change the locks) let me know and I'll send you all the best people that I've been working with for the last 6 years. I hope you're using a Realtor? And good luck!!

  4. That's so awesome! Congrats :)

  5. Yep. Totally jealous. Good for you!!

  6. Welp.....I like that you post updates on your posts!!!
