House Update

I am a little nervous to post this, but we *might* have a house! This is all so different from the last time we bought a house that I just do not know what to expect. When we bought our house in NC, we were in a military town and the market was great. It really did not take much to get everything in order, and it seems like from the time our offer was accepted until we closed was really not that long at all. This time around everything seems to be moving in slow motion. Our offer was accepted like two weeks ago and we still do not have an end in sight. We are hoping to close by November 24th, but we still do not have our financing through, our home inspection or the appraisal. So, hopefully that will all be settled by this week.

It is a really great house!! One of the most exciting things is that it is REALLY close to my SIL's house. I won't bore you with the details, but it was one of the first houses that we looked at and loved. It was a little out of our price range at the time so we decided to keep looking. Well a couple of months later and the bank had dropped the price $10,000. We offered $5,000 less and they accepted our offer! See it pays to be patient (and picky).

Congratulations and good luck ... I hope things keep moving in the right direction. Buying a house and moving can be stressful! Hang in there!

I am keeping my fingers crossed Catie that it works out and everything falls into place. When my parents uts sold-it seemed like it took forever between the offer being accepted and closing! I really hope it is yours and we can see pictures!
