Fantastic!

Hey that's great.  Glad you got the place.  And from the sounds of it, you got a great deal too.

I'd offer to help you move, etc., but the Denver area is a bit too far away to do much to help.  Good luck getting settled in and have a great move.

Congratulations on getting

Congratulations on getting the place. I like the hard wood floors, they look good. Now comes all the joy and pain of being a home owner.

yeah, i have a feeling i know

yeah, i have a feeling i know what you mean. i already am waiting for the day i have to fix the septic lagoon or something. then i have to go out and dig up the yard in the middle of winter.

 

the buying process still isn't over, but hopefully, it goes off without a hitch! thanks guys.

and meat hunter. denver's only like 8 hours, so if you feel like a good weekend trip ;) you might just be able to talk me into letting you crash on that hardwood floor.

i should be allright with moving. my wife's not pregnant this time, so she better get to work.

Congratulations on the good score!

That is a great idea to look for a home with property that I could hunt and fish close by either of your own or public access. Like you, I couldn’t stand to live in town unless I absolutely had to, but that’s why I commute over a hundred miles a day. It is a real blessing to be able to target shoot in the backyard and start hunting as soon as you step out the door. Congratulations on the good score!  

The place sounds great! I just made an offer on another 2 acres across the road from my place, but they are asking $3,500 per acre and I don’t think it is worth half of that for land that I just want to keep vacant. So far they have dropped their price by $1,100, but the $5,900 for just two vacant acres is still more than double what I am willing to pay for them. $102,000 for your place including the house is not bad at all! You made a smart move to make an offer lower than what they were asking for. Congratulations!

Congratulations on what looks

Congratulations on what looks like a great piece of property and house. I don't know your area but that seems like an incredible price for nearly anywhere. That graph shows you saved a fortune over just a few years ago. Over here wher I live even with the economy you would pay that in a trailer park and still not even own the land. Space rent alone for some of my friends is over 600 per month now. You did really well and should be set for a long time and when the econemy picks up andyou ever decide to move should make out really well.

I was hoping you were on this side of the state when I first read this but that's almost 12 hours away from my side of Colorado. Hopefully your move goes well and you get the help you need with heavy stuff.

I was hoping i'd be on the west end of the state as well.

... women! i guess i just settled for second best on the location. but the advantages of living within an hour of kansas city is finding good work.

I've got the signed final

I've got the signed final contract for the house. now all that's left is the loan paper finalization and hopefully i'll be moving in to the place in a few weeks.  if my phone would start working better, that'd be a plus too. since all of the stuff imve ben checking out on the forum is on my mobile.               now imve got tons of work to do, not to mention starting to pack. good luck out there guys, i won't get out until trapping season now.       ew weeks.
