it looks like we’re actually going to put an offer on something. this weekend we found another property on the 1800 block of monroe street nw in mount pleasant, and it looks perfect.

there is plenty of space, a potential rental unit downstairs, and all the little things that make a DC property great (molding, layout, finishing) are still there.

there are some quirks — one bathroom on the top floor, not a ton of closet space, and no parking — but we could easily see ourselves spending the next couple of decades of our lives there.

the seller isn’t even entertaining offers until Tuesday night, so we’re in no great rush — just pulling together all the details and hoping it doesn’t get into a bidding war.

i’m guessing we won’t hear anything until Thursday at the earliest.
