I feel that I should clarify for everyone that this is NOT our house....yet. First we have to let the planning department know that we are officially making a proposal for the house. Then the planning department puts an add in paper and posts a sign up in front of the house that they are open to receiving proposals on that property. All of this comes with some sort of time/date time line.
So...that means that when the time comes for our proposal to go before the "committee" that reviews it and says, "Yay or Nay.", we could be one of several wanting this property.
A bit nerve racking isn't it?
