Default Got a house!

After a few months, 30+ showings, the fifth house I made an offer on was a charm. Good location, perfect house for what I need and then some.

It's at 12 Mile between I-75 and John R, so getting to Romulus won't be too bad. Decent area of Madison Heights, and a nice neighborhood.

Now the inspection, appraisal, and writing the biggest check of my life is next!

Congrats! That's a great area - very convenient access to just about anywhere and a quick drive down Dequindre to Loui's Pizza!

I haven't been there in years, I need to plan a trip for some pizza soon!

Congrats Jeff. The checks only get bigger from here on out. I wish the down payment was the largest.

I've never heard of this Boodle's but judging by the reviews on Yelp, I may need to check it out soon.

Mad-as-hell whites, aint that bad yet. Totally depends on the street.
some streets are great. Some are total white trash central. Some are bagdad.

congrats and good luck.

im 3 miles south of ya.
Louis is great!
Genos pizza is real good if you want delivery or carry out, order the "heavyweight".
boodles is pretty decent, and not crazy expensive.
