Just found out, like 5 minutes ago, that our house passed the appraisal! Barely, it came in right at what we offered (which, I guess, is normal?).
However, if we make the changes we would like (make 1/2 bath a 3/4 bath, and change the countertops), it will add $8000 to the value of the home. Leaving us with $3000 in equity. Not much, but hey....that is better than some homes throughout the country.
We are beyond excited to be moving to our new home. I can not wait!
Packing is already well on its way. In fact, parts of our living room are covered in boxes......to the ceiling.
