Nearly 5 months after putting in our offer on a short sale in Upper Fells Point, we’ve signed the papers. We can finally say its ours.

The house is a standard narrow 3 story + basement brick row house in Baltimore, Maryland. Our real estate agent and friend Aldo Figueroa (www.realestatebyaldo.com) showed us this house back in March. This was the first house we looked at. That’s right; we bought the first house we looked at.

What sold us on it was the 30′ x 43′ back yard. Not big by suburban standards, but decent for Upper Fells Point. If we need more room to run, Patterson Park is but 5 blocks to the east. ¬†Fells Point is a few blocks to the South. ¬†And Johns Hopkins is a few blocks to the north (I hope I dont need to go there very often!).

The house is going to need a few things before we’re ready to move in. It’s quite a list, but we’ll get to that later. Welcome to the site. Siri and I hope to share the whole experience with you (good or bad).
