survived the move

I would apologize for the recent lack of updates if anybody besides myself was actually reading my blog… ;) Anyway, we moved to our new house in San Francisco last weekend, and overall everything was pretty smooth. Of course, with two little kids it takes a lot longer to unpack everything and settle in, so the garage is still full of boxes and I haven’t even started with my office. But the actual living area is mostly complete already....

Our new house

We had a home inspection for our new house today, and we still love it. We need to do some fairly minor electrical upgrades and fix a few other things, but overall everything is in great shape. We also took the opportunity to drive around a little in our neighborhood as well as adjacent neighborhoods. The house itself is in Merced Heights, a pretty decent and family friendly, but otherwise somewhat boring area....

Got the house!

We got it! Unfortunately (well, I guess fortunately, since we would not have gotten it otherwise) our initial offer was countered and we had to increase the offer amount (which was already beyond our original limit) quite a bit. Oh well… I’m trying not to think about the amount and instead be happy that we got the place we wanted.

Buying a house

I am feeling very jittery today because we are about to make an offer on a house in San Francisco, and while the offer price is high enough that it will likely ruin us financially, we are expecting so much fierce competition about this property that the chances of actually getting it are probably fairly slim. So please keep your fingers crossed, because we really love this place.
