Welp, I took the plunge. Yesterday, mom and I were looking at houses and found one that is pretty much perfect for me. It has 1800sqft, including the finished basement, a pretty big back yard, and parking for around 8 cars in the paved driveway.
I thought about it until around 7pm last night and called the realtor to tell her my bid. She wanted to make it official, so we went to her office and did all of the paperwork. Around 8:30pm she went to the seller’s house with my bid and they accepted on the spot. So it looks like I’ll be a homeowner sometime around December 4th.
Now for my dislikes: I have to paint. The previous owner has big bird yellow paint and some ugly ass barney purple. The entire basement is yellow, minus the carpet of course. They even painted the support beams in the basement yellow. WTF!?! The cabinets in the kitchen must be painted because I will not live with that purple-ish color on them. If anyone wants to help out with the painting, let me know. I’ll provide pizza and beer. Also, if anyone knows people who do contruction, I need someone to take out the floor to ceiling support beams in the basement and put in a huge wall to wall beam. This has to be done for me to put a 9’*4.5′ pool table in the basement.
Anyway, after closing I’ll be in debt for 30 years. Anyone wanting to donate to the “Get Blane out of Debt” fund can do so at anytime. Just call me for details lol.
