    Our home search has come to an end with offer accepted on a very nice Southern Colonial style in Burlington.
    Almost feels like we are vultures. Just a little bit.
    Considering what we were seeing in the same price range this one should have sold at least $50k higher and out of our range.
    The kitchen alone.....
    Some people are going think I'm the help when I'm dressed for yard work. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Home inspection Friday.
    Signing our side of the closing on our current home on Friday.
    Closing on the Dixon-McMason in October.
    Just in time to show Monster House in the driveway for Trick or Treat.

    About 10 minutes from the Y.
    But I'll still go to the AE Finley Y in Raleigh before work. It opens at 5. Only 15 minutes to the office from there.

    Wow, what a kitchen! As a former prep/line cook, I love a nice kitchen and miles of prep space! lol.

    Nicely done, and congratulations. May you and your family have many happy, healthy times there!

    After you are settled in, let me know and you can join me as a guest at Frontline Defense in Warrenton when you are free on a Saturday or Sunday when they are open to public.

    That kinda looks like the house where the DeFeo family was murdered ... could that be why you got it on the vulture deal price?

    Just don't go in the basement. I know, they didn't tell you there was a basement.

    Seriously, congrats. Beautiful house! I wonder if it was a distressed sale, aka divorce.

    My neighbors actually think of me an asset to the neighborhood. Turns out tatted up bikers dissuade most undesirables from coming around :cool:

    Indeed. My wife asked if I thought it was too big. Hell no. Perfect size.
    And yard just big enough to justify a new rider mower. Maybe a latbar ZT.

    I used to live in Burvegas and I vaguely remember that house. Actually more than vaguely, my Dad used to live across from your new house's garage! My FIL still lives in Burvegas. Congrats, fellow CFF'er whom I have not met. Enjoy the new digs.

    I couldn't resist rubbing it in.
    I sent a picture of the house to a former colleague.
    They think the tiny place the company stuck me is normal or even luxury.

    I must view those years as personal growth experience. True trials of the spirit.
    It was hard for my wife too.
    We are stronger now because of it.

    Assuming we get settled enough to set up the projector for trick or treat I'll post up here.
    Then if you want the addres to stop by, pm me.
    It will be a sort of kid friendly cartoon.
    Monster house, Paranorman, Hotel Transylvania. Along those lines
