Condo Tour

I made an offer on my current condo, sight unseen, in June of 2012. I had previously made an offer on another unit in the same complex & was outbid, even though I offered more than the asking price. My condo was on the market for less than 12 hours before it had 4 offers on it. I was lucky to have a smart, aggressive realtor with good connections in the area. After waiting for 3 days, I found out that they had accepted my offer.

It was a short sale, so it took a while for everything to get situated. We ended up closing in September (4 months after making the initial offer) but I was unable to move in until the renter vacated in October. Once I finally got into my condo, I was so incredibly happy! I was lucky to get such a clean & well kept unit & I am loving every day as I slowly make it more & more my own!

  1. Wow you’ve got a LOT to do! I’m jealous though bc I would love to do this with my apt, but I’m slightly more temporary there. Seriously let me know if you need help! I’ve gotten into the diy/artsy mood 🙂
