House-hunting update

My mom has finally agreed on supporting me in my decision to buy a house. What a great relief. Now, I can really tell agents that I can commit. I’ve found a place I am ready to commit to so YAY #1. I’ve found the right bank to loan from, so YAY #2 Now, it will be to see if the negotiation for the house comes through. Will the seller agree to my asking price? =/
