Our offer has been accepted!  It’s still conditional on a few things, so we’re trying not to get too excited yet, but we’re celebrating a little.
We actually waited a bit too long on it, someone else made an offer today too, so we had to go straight to our best offer, no trying to get them down.  But our realtor called just a few minutes ago to say our offer was accepted. The other offer was a bit higher than ours but it was 100% financed (no down payment) whereas we’re putting over 50% down, and our deposit was a bit higher.
We’ll do an inspection next week and talk to our bankers, and by the end of the week should be able to remove all our conditions.  It’s also conditional on the sale of our house being firm, which will happen Tuesday if they can meet their conditions.
We’re excited, but it’s with a lot of trepidation–these are such huge decisions it’s hard to get really excited over them!
Here’s the mls listing for the house we’re buying. Now that it’s sold this link may stop working…  http://www.mls.ca/PropertyDetails.aspx?PropertyID=6870788
Here are more pictures and panoramic views, which may keep working longer:  http://www.myvisuallistings.com/vt/14024
I think this link will bring you to a map, with a blue pin marking the house.  But I’m not sure.  http://maps.live.com/default.aspx?v=2&FORM=LMLTCC&cp=51.109581~-114.190457&style=h&lvl=18&tilt=-90&dir=0&alt=-1000&phx=0&phy=0&phscl=1&encType=1&cid=E88F13948BE16DED!116
