It's been 3 weeks, and we are officially under contract. We found a house that is perfect. The negotiations were completed in one DAY! What can I say - we wanted to buy and they wanted to sell. No banks, or foreclosures, or short sales this time.
The inspection has been completed, and we have gone back to the sellers to see if they will fix a few of the items that needed some love. I'm keeping everything crossed that this one will work out. We have to give notice on our rental by the end of February, and I'd really like to have a house by then.
I've even started listing some of our older things that aren't going to be making the big move on Craigslist. So far I've received spam, spam and a bit more spam!
