    Well, sorta - it's a townhouse, and I didn't just buy it, but I did sign an agreement of sale. We'll close it next month. Its a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, garage, walkout basement, deck. (the one on the right)

    Congratulations Russ! :approve: :cool:

    Hopefully the plumbing and electrical are decent, and the roof is tight.

    Now you own a mortgage, or does the mortgage own you. I forget. :rofl:

    What's the backyard like?

    Looks like a great place: fairly new, pleasant design, bit of woods in the back. I bet you'll like it there.

    Look at the size of that place. Think of all the wall space and shelf space you have to display all the Disney stuff!

    You've just entered the exciting part of the purchase...the time for the home inspection and the resultant seller getting PO'd and then their next purchase falls through and then you're put off by three months and then the city realizes that certain permits weren't pulled and then....er.....never mind.

    Congrats! Welcome to the wonderful world of home ownership! I'm guessing 1200 sq ft?

    Actually, no - the house is only 2 years old, so I'm forgoing the inspection and the seller is moving in with his fiance, so as long as they don't break up in the next 6 weeks, I'm golden.
    Just under 1,600 including the garage.

    I herd you can buy the disney castle for under $10,000,000 dollars or you can buy the epcot giant golf ball for $100,000,000 but if that's too enxpensive I herd you can by the world is a small place ride for $1,000,000.But try not by the tower of terror it may be cheap but your health insurence goes way up.

    I would advise against skipping the home inspection, but that is just my opinion.

    You guys get to count the garage in the sq. footage? The only places you are allowed to count sq footage here is if it is living space. Quite the bachelor pad.

    In places I've lived the garage is included in the square footage if it is attached, the square footage is not included if the garage is not attached.
