For those of you that remember my thread a couple months ago about wondering if we'd qualify for a loan...<br><br>
Well we found a steal of a deal 3 bedroom home here (steal of a deal means $215,000...when the average is at least $300,000) and were pre-approved for a loan up to $270,000...so we put in our offer today.<br><br>
We are excited and can hardly believe this is happening. We don't want to get our hopes up too much because the seller could accept another offer or something else could happen in escrow. But hey- it's all worth a shot for a deal that would end up being barely more than we are paying for rent...actually maybe less for all we'll save in taxes.<br><br>
I'm most excited about having a yard so I can finally plant a garden and keep chickens for eggs.<br><br>
So we'll see- stay tuned.

Hehe thanks for your excitement for me Mommas.<br><br>
Let's see if this works:<br><br><a href="http://laquinta.yourkwoffice.com/frame_idx?target=idx_url_1" target="_blank">http://laquinta.yourkwoffice.com/fra...rget=idx_url_1</a><br><br>
I love that though it's only 1,400 sqft the kitchen and living area are HUGE and the floor plan is so open it makes it look much bigger. The bedrooms are tiny, but that's fine by me. I also am excited about the tile. I LOATHE carpet...gets so full of allergens and we have a very light tan non scotch guarded carpet in apartment now and as soon as I shampoo it it is covered with stains in a month (and we don't have kids yet, and dh, I and the roomates all work in offices...no outside stuff tracked in so I don't know whats up).<br><br>
Hmm I can't figure out how make the link show just our listing. If you want to see it click on residential, then single family, then under cities select La Quinta then under price list 215,000 and 215,000 and it is 52445 Avenida Navarro. Sorry I can't figure how it make it easier and dh the computer guru is asleep haha.
