Today our realtor had arranged a few more viewings for us. Our very first one made us forget our three from yesterday. It had been well maintained and was clean. It even boasted a beautiful deck that led to the above-ground pool. The primary downside was that there was no separate dining room, and the kitchen was fairly small, so a table could be tricky to maneuver.
The homes that followed were all measured against this first one but found lacking. Until one came along. It was very unassuming from the outside, but the inside was perfect. It even had a finished basement, one long family room that could be sectioned off as we saw fit. And while it had no pool, it did boast a screened-in porch. It quickly trumped the first. Two other showings on that home took place earlier today since it's new on the market, so we decided to make an offer. We will hear one way or another by tomorrow night. Should they decline, we may try to schedule a second showing of our runner-up and even place an offer before we leave on Monday.
Until then, we wait. We will swim, play cribbage, and read to pass the time.
