Thanks everyone for their support and congrats.

For my Massachusetts peeps, the house is in Taunton (very close to the Lakeville line).

I hope its a 20,000 sqft castle costing you 3 jobs to make the minimums on your ARM.

Awesome for you- Ive been a house "owner" for 3 years now. Never thought I would find something more expensive than the wife.

It still has to pass the home inspection, etc., but we're psyched!
Congratulations! I am at the same stage as you are. The thing is in attorney review. This is a great time to buy. Low interest rates, and low prices. I expect that interest rates will be rising soon and next year home prices will begin climbing up.

Congrats to you and yours!!!

Get the camera ready and takes lots of pics when you take over ownership...especially when you "release the hounds" into the backyard. Capture their joy on the first day and you'll have the memory forever. Also good to have "before" pics, so you can look back at all the improvements you'll do in years to come.

AND expect some sleepless "my-God-what-have-we-done" moments when you feel the weight of financial responsibility. This, too, shall pass. We all felt it with our first home, but you mention how careful you've been with this decision, so chase those doubts away and enjoy yerselves!!!

Oh, and did I say CONGRATS?!!!

There is nothing like the feeling you have the first time you recline in the back yard with a beer and realize that the grass under your feet is yours and not some landlord's.

(yah-- you owe money on it but it's YOURS)

My SWMBO and I also just bought a house. San Antonio, TX. The inspection is getting done this week, and we are scheduled to close in 3 weeks. I am super-pumped, like you and yours. We, too, acquired a spacious backyard for the pups. Got a heck of a deal, compared to the comp houses in the neighborhood. Congrats, and Cheers!
