Closing Wednesday

So fingers crossed closing is on Wednesday. Hope it all works out because I really do need to move. My commute is exhausting, and my lack of privacy is maddening.


Staining furniture

…..and my hands.
Now that I have a real closing date I need to get busy with all of these DIY projects. I’m so excited to move and I just want it to settle in quickly so I can enjoy the summer in my new house

Still waiting

This waiting has been difficult. At least I heard back from the realtor yesterday. She has not been the easiest person to get a hold of lately. Maybe the May 17th closing date isn’t out of the question. Not sure if I should get my hopes up.
When I was signing papers almost a month ago May 17th seemed like such a crazy long time to wait now I’m just really hoping they can work it out by then. So I sit and wait as patiently as I can.

Illegal foreclosure

Fun story today I found out that the house I am in love with was an illegal foreclosure in 2005.
So the lawyer guy is telling me that this process could take months and that the purchase and sales agreement we have reached is probably going to be cancelled.
But my realtor is telling me that if they can find the person that was foreclosed on back in 2005 and get his signature everything will be all set.
Not really sure who to listen to. I do not want to have to start looking again but I also really don’t want to have to wait months and months to figure out if the house can be mine.

Buying a short sale

I love this house.  I really do.  But I’m starting to wonder if buying a short sale was not a smart choice.  The tentative closing date they gave me is May 17th.  That seems like a really long time to wait.

It’s frustrating because my commute time between kiddos I see has increased a lot, and this house is really supposed to help with the commute, but if I have to wait 6 weeks to move well that is frustrating.  I do not want to have to drive 300 miles a week for the next 6 weeks.
