It was a close call. After offering $10k lower than the asking price of $210,000, 2 other offers came in for the house that weekend. So we raised the stakes ourselves, offering $210,500 and waiving the inspection contingency.
To our relief, that offer (which was simply the highest we could offer given our current finances) was accepted. Woo! Praise God for that. I'm feeling a combination of joy & relief after all this house searching, sorting of finances, budgeting, and waiting. Wow. All that's done. Hopefully I don't have to do this again for another 20 years!
It's nice, fairly large (especially for the price), appears to be built well, looks good on the inside and outside. I really like the place, pretty good bargain I think. I'll upload some pictures of it soon.
