Well since my rent is going up $225.00 a month I decided to look and see if I would pre-qualify for a house. Low & behold I have great credit & have been approved & have a contract on a house. It's a HUD home so it does need some fixing but hopefully everything will go well. Should close before Thanksgiving.......
Most everything is one color, off white so we will be spending a few days painting before moving in, then both bathrooms need re-grouted, put in a section of fence, and a few other items as well. Hopefully we will be moved in by the first of Dec.


And another little update, Teri & I are getting married again on 11-11-11. We have been dating over six months & things seem to be going very well. Sometimes people just need some space I guess. One of the things she said she would do if we ever got back together is do short bike rides with me on the bike paths, but after riding on the road a few times, then getting a road bike, she has over 700 miles on her bicycle since June & is loving it.

Please keep us in your prayers, hopefully the house will go as planned & we will be back as a family once again.....

i remember when i bought my first house. that was one of the most fun, yet nerve racking months of my life! you think 40 days is enough to get inspections, renegotiate and close escrow, but it will fly by like nothing! congrats on that, the feeling of owning your own property for the first time and knowing you can mold it and shape it into anything you envision is a great feeling. congrats on the wedding too, its a great time to be you!

Congrats Perry! I'm going to be closing on a new house this Friday also... Very excited about everything but painting- I like to paint, but 2,700 sq. feet of hideous walls means I won't see anything but Woosters and paint buckets for a few weeks. :D

Post some pics!

For the price we paid in Wyoming for a house, we would have got crap in FTC. We looked alot, but anything remotely exciting was 200K+...
