I decided back in October to take advantage of the $8,000 tax credit, if it was extended. It was and I am.
I have been looking for three weeks at homes and, after one that was too big and was that was too small, have found one that seems just right. It is an adobe in the north valley (Los Griegos area). Two carpeted bedrooms, one brick floor bedroom that can be a great den area, a large eat-in kitchen, and a large living area with a kiva fireplace. Two full bathrooms, viga ceilings thoughout, an adobe doghouse and a blue goose on the chimney. I even found out that the newest next door neighbor is someone whom I know.
So far, everything has aligned itself for a good purchase. I am going to make an offer today at one o'clock.
