Our Important Dates

March 13, 2008 - Our first date.
November 13, 2009 - The night we got engaged.
July 3, 2010 - Our wedding.
October 22, 2010 - The closing date on our first home.

We found a house. Not just any house but our first home. It is a short sale, which by the name you would think it would be fast and quick, however it is quite the opposite. Instead it is the most drawn out painful experience that plays with your emotions and patience. 

We would like to introduce our 4 bed/2 bath/ 2 car house we are trying to adopt...

After some ups and downs of bidding wars and waiting we finally found out yesterday that the bank accepted our offer (kind of... our offer plus $49). We are so ecstatic that this house we have been painting and renovating in our heads for the past couple weeks is one step closer to being ours. 

Along with an additional $49, the bank listed a closing date of "on or before Oct. 22". Eek! That is less than 29 days from the date we received the acceptance paperwork. We've been told it will be tight, but that we should be able to do it... if the house passes the FHA inspection. Good thing I finally found my favorite pumpkin ale to get me through the next week! Sweet liquid pumpkin pie to distract me. Do you think I can bring it with me when our inspector tells us everything that is wrong with our house?

Step one for a speedy close: Inspection - 12:45 Monday... check.

  1. Yes. You can bring your ale. And no worries, that appraisal is going to come thru just fine!
