Proud New Home Owner

That's right, last Monday I placed an offer on a house in South Philadelphia and it was accepted. Very soon I will be the proud owner of 1145 Mercy Street, Philadelphia PA 19148 (see a map)
I got what I feel was a really good deal and offered asking price with a 6% seller's assist (hopefully my closing costs will be very low). It's a 2 bedroom, one bath row house with about 920 sq. ft. It has been updated with a new kitchen, new bathroom, laminate floors, new drywall, recessed lighting, and ceiling fans in every room. I have a cute little back yard that is very private with a lot of potential and a faux fireplace in the master bedroom. If I get a mortgage and have a good inspection I should be closing on June 13th, just in time for a 4th of July crab feast.

Alright!! That is so exciting. Make up the guest bed for the day we finally get out there to visit you. I didn't realize it would take two months to finalize the whole process. Have fun dreaming of how you will fix it up!!

Guest bed? What's that? It's going to be a futon or an air mattress besides Kyler will probably want to sleep on the floor on in the back yard or something.

Congrats. Count me in for a guest bed, also. Thanks for voting and being a juror. You go, Man.
