I just want to buy a house

A few weeks ago I found a condo that I love. It is close to my work, walking distance to a farmers market, and has its own front door and backyard space.

But now I wait and wait and wait while I struggle with banks and lawyers. First I applied to a local credit union only to rarely get my calls returned. So then I applied to a bigger bank. I filled out all the paperwork and was then told “oh we don’t do short sales”. Now things are moving again. I found Ryan. He is my new favorite person. He does mortgages including short sales and returns my calls. So fingers crossed it is smooth sailing from here.

It has been a while

It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and written anything in this.  I guess I just lost the motivation to write about craft projects.  But the past few weeks I’ve been really busy finding a home to buy, and I’m really excited about that.

I found a one bedroom condo about 20 minutes from where I live now, and I’m in love with it.  But it is a short sale.  Hopefully it will close quickly, but my realtor keeps warning me that it could take up to 6 months. 

With everything that has happened over the past I guess it has been 5 months now it will be so amazing and wonderful to have a space that is my own and no one can take away from me.
