I haven’t been on much over the last couple of days. Partially because it is Thanksgiving Weekend, but also because we had an offer accepted on a house!!
Can you believe it?
Now the whirlwind starts. The paperwork, the checks that need to be written, the time that needs to be put into it. The offer was accepted on Wednesday morning. That is when the ticking clocks began.
One week to have an inspection. So, on Thanksgiving I was connecting with Home Inspectors to make an appointment. Tomorrow at 10am, I will spend a couple of hours at our new home hoping that everything checks out alright!
I have submitted all the paperwork necessary so far. Written a check of earnest money! But, the list of things to do continues to be added to.
As of right now our closing date is scheduled for January 10th! The sellers will have possession for 30 days past that, so in the middle of February we will be able to move into our new home.
It was the first home that I went and saw after Paul was pre-approved. The very first home that I walked in to. At the time there was an offer in on it and I didn’t want to stress out and rush Paul to see it, so I just said “no its OK”. Well 5 days later there still wasn’t an accepted offer, so I decided to ask Paul if he wanted to go through it.
Anyway, we put in an offer late Tuesday night and by Wednesday at 11am it was accepted! It was meant to be. This was meant to be our families home. I am so excited about this next step for our family. A home, a home that is ours, that we can make ours. Not just a space that we are borrowing from someone else.
Any hopes, prayers and thoughts that you can send our way would be much appreciated!
