Our offer was accepted! Yay! We are beginning the process to own a 1227 square foot bungalow in Milestone Saskatchewan. It's a really lovely place, only a block away from the schools, schools which will not be closing any time in the future as most of the small towns around Milestone are already bussing their kids in to them. It comes with a dishwasher, beautiful new stainless stove and fridge, and a satellite dish. The furnace is new, as is the hot water tank, the basement is concrete and in good shape. It has three bedrooms on the main floor and one in the basement, along with a playroom complete with painted mural, a living room/rec room area and a large laundry/storage area. There are one and a half bathrooms on the main floor, one off the master bedroom and the full bath has a jet soaker tub. The kitchen is nice and big and open, and off the dining room area there are french doors leading to a brand new, very nice deck. The back yard isn't fenced, but it's huge and really well taken care of, oh, and it has built in sprinklers too. It needs some paint, as the previous owners painted specifically for their own tastes and kids, and it will need new windows, but other than that we really don't think it needs much work. We are getting a home inspection done anyways, so we may find something out there, but I'm confident that it won't be anything we can't handle. We take possession on August 3rd, which works well for us as our lease here ends at the end of August. That way we can take the month to move slowly and get everything that needs to be done done. I'll take pictures and post them here as soon as we get a chance, but that probably won't be till August.
I'm so glad that things finally worked out for us! This house is more what we were looking for than the others that we put offers on, so yay!
