We [may have] Bought A House

Karen and I have been searching for a house to buy and finally came across one we really liked.  We put in an offer last week and it was accepted, so we have begun the slow crawl through the remaining paperwork.

We were hoping to stay in Cambridge, but the property availability, types, and price were just not what we were looking for.  So we looked 6 km down the road in Medford and found a house we like.

We have been renting for a long time now, and were both renters even before we met.  We are looking forward to some simple things that most homeowners probably take for granted:
  • a dishwasher
  • a washer and dryer that is (a) in your house and (b) that you don't share with other apartments
  • a microwave oven
  • a driveway
  • a garage
Yes, these are pretty silly, but the last time I lived somewhere with a dishwasher was in 2007.  And I haven't had my own washer and dryer since 2005.

The sellers want a closing date of May 30th.  Pictures at some point.  So much paperwork to sort out before then.
