Only the Beginning

This is only the very beginning of the journey of buying a home, it could still fall through at any point.  Actually since we’re waiting to hear if they accept our bid it hasn’t even really started at all yet.

What scares the bejesis out of me is that if and when they do accept a bid of ours there is a good month at least that someone else could come along and want to pay more.  That sucks.  I think once the bid is accepted it should be on hold.

It’s still so exciting though, these first 24 hours are going to give me a stroke or something.

Update 2:23 pm: No update…no word yet.

Update 4:45 pm: Still no word…what’s taking so long?

    Will your bid be more binding if you put down earnest money right away?

    I can’t believe you have to wait this long. When we put in the bid on our house, the realtor told us to go up the street for a cup of coffee. They called us there within the hour with their counter-offer.

    You must be going crazy waiting!

    Well we are supposed to find out in 24 hours and I would think we’d find out at any time at this point. We did put down a big chunk of cash to show we were interested if that’s what you mean.

    I am going crazy :twitchy:
