WE FOUND A HOUSE!
It's a beautiful place in Alabaster. It's a foreclosure but it's in surprisingly good shape. It's not move-in ready by any means, but it doesn't have any major structural issues. The biggest thing we will have to do after closing is replace the siding on the chimney, paint inside and out, trim the shrubs, and replace all the carpet upstairs and the kitchen floor, replace the microwave and maybe the stove, plus make a few minor repairs.
The plan right now is to move around the first of the year. That way we can get all the updates done, have the place deep cleaned, and survive the holidays before we tackle moving.
We haven't set a closing date yet but it will definitely be before the end of the first week of November. We're hoping for the last week of October. One of the conditions of the contract is that the seller gets to choose the closing stuff. Well, the owner is technically in California. If they want us to come out to California to close, I am FINE with that! I really doubt that's going to happen, but I can dream!
