Oh My God

We just put an offer in on a house.

It's a 1300 sq. foot, 3-bedroom townhouse with a two-car garage. Nice size, good location, bedrooms for each of the kids, and a nice back yard. It needs some TLC and a good cleaning, but otherwise, it's perfect.

I'm scared, nervous, excited and hopeful all at the same time.

I know I'm not supposed to get my hopes up, but I can't help it. I love this house. I want it to be ours.

The Bay Area home market is still ridiculously expensive. Yes, some prices have dropped, and interest rates are still at a decent level. But one can hardly find a townhouse or condo for less than $475k. That's almost half a million dollars. Even with two working adults contributing to the mortgage, this is a daunting debt to take on.

But we can do this. We're ready.

Cross your fingers for us.
