We began our house hunt about 3 months ago. After seeing and immediately falling in love with this house, we made an offer began the wait. That's because this house, like the majority of the homes for sale in the Phoenix area are short sales. That means that the owner owes more on the home than he can sell it for, thus the bank, or in this case, banks have to approve the sale before it can go through. And they definitely take their own sweet time.
Well, today we got the approval from the second bank!! Now the real fun begins; inspections, appraisals, paperwork, etc. Hopefully in about 30 days it will finally be OUR home!
It looks rather unassuming from the outside, but we love it; the layout, location, yard (or possibilities with the yard) and best of all its 6 minutes from Steve's office! Its in the Palm Valley area of Goodyear, a little west of Phoenix. I wish I had interior pictures to post, but here's the link to the floorplan if you want to take a look!
