To update you on the housing situation I spoke about some days ago, the seller accepted our offer! W00t!
The financing also came through. Whew!
The contract, OTOH, hasn’t been signed yet. Since the owner isn’t moving out until later this winter, the contract is probably going to be ready in mid-November or December. Then we sign, wait and move in.
I know 2013 seems so far away, but I’m just happy that we actually have a happy ending to our long (6+ months), exhausting and extremely stressful house hunting. I was so anxious that something might go wrong the last minute, and we might not be able to get the place after all.
Special thanks to all the awesome people (you know who you are!) who sent us good vibes, thoughts and/or prayers. You guys are fabulous! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
