We've put in a verbal offer and on Friday we will be discussing everything with the realtor. He owns the house so we don't have to go through a middle person when discussing everything and then waiting.

There's some things that we need to discuss. Mainly the back yard as it slopes. We need a decent back yard for the little ones. Playing and being outside is a favorite activity in our family.

We looked at this house this fall and we decided against it due to the back yard. When we looked at it again this weekend we told him that was the only thing holding us back. He said he would be willing to get in a retaining wall and do landscaping in the back to make it work for us.

This house is large and everything inside has been updated. Brand new kitchen, flooring and paint. It's move in ready. All that we would need to purchase is a refrigerator and that's it.

We also need to take into account that we need to sell our house too. The housing market isn't the best at the moment and we don't want to be stuck with two mortgages.

I'm nervous, excited and scared!! I hope it will all work out. If not, then that's ok too. Another one will come along in time that would work for us.

We shall see...
