Here we go again!

We're planning to bid on this house tonight. Wish us luck; we may escape Frat Row in Towson.

Update: We're pre-approved for the loan, and didn't require a contingency. In other words, we don't need to rush to sell our house, we can buy, settle, move in, and fix-up and sell. But it would be in our best interest to sell 2 York before January when the new mortgage kicks in.

Mustn't get too antsy--last time we tried to buy one of these regal mansions we got burned by competitive bidding that drove the price up 50K in a weekend.

Good luck -- that looks gorgeous. I love those dark wood floors.

It's absurd to buy such a house for only the two of us. We'd have to rent out the top floor or something.

Beautiful my brother! I am sure Patricia will find a way to utilize the extra space. AND there is always a need for more library space. You guys deserve it.

GOOD LUCK!

I am on a mission to eliminate clutter from my world. Clean lines, minimal furnishings, craft supplies and art supplies and toilet paper tubes hidden away in one room only. This might be the solution. I will need a nice elegant book case...and a dining room table, and the kitchen needs work. Bah!
