Househunting, episode...whatever

I'm putting in an offer on a 2-bedroom, 1.75 bathroom condo in Monrovia. It's got a beautiful living room, dining room and kitchen, a front patio, detached 2-car garage and a substantial amount of built-in shelving. The master suite has a walk-in closet and a 3/4 bathroom large enough to expand into a full. Faux-wood laminate runs through the main hallway and living room, while white tile accents the bathrooms, kitchen and countertops. The entire place is move-in ready, and has only been on the market for a couple days.

There are a couple drawbacks. There's no washer-dryer hookup, so I'd have to use the communal coin-op on the other side of the building (at least until I install a washer/dryer of my own, an option I fully intend to explore). It's a first-story condo in a 2-story building, so I'd have upstairs neighbors. I havent' met them yet, but they have a rather loud bird that they keep on their balcony. It's also across the street from the 210 freeway, but there's a very effective sound wall and I can't hear any road noises from the patio, much less inside. Also, there doesn't seem to be any windows in either of the bedbathrooms. No mildewy smell, though, which means they must have adequate ventilation.

Wish me luck!

EDIT: Bathrooms! No windows in the bathrooms!
