around the "new" house! Josh wasn't able to a go to the inspection but the boys and I went. The inspector was excellent and very thorough. There were several flaws that we seen from the start but a few major things have us waiting today for news that the owner will get them repaired. Hopefully this won't be too much of an issue and things will move right along to the closing date. If I haven't said it yet, this whole house selling/buying thing is seriously exhausting (both mentally and physically). I know it will all be worth it in the end though.
It feels like it's taking forever....and then again, it seems like it will be here before we know it. lol Tomorrow I am going to the new house to be there during the inspection. We are still waiting on the appraisal results for both homes. Keeping fingers crossed they both come back "top dollar". :) Planning to take a few pics tomorrow and maybe even get a measurement or two.
Or something like that. We made an offer and it was countered and we went back one more time. Somehow, he caved and signed it. Yes, pending....it's pending to US! Things seem to be moving faster but yet slower. Our house has been inspected and we are awaiting to hear if there is anything that the buyers may request to be repaired. We can't think of anything that would need done. Appraisal check was dropped off and we are awaiting the scheduled time for our new home to be inspected. Projected double closings are around July 25th...give or take a couple days.
Thoughts of updating and tweaking our home has consumed my mind. I have only drove out by it about every other day. It's about 2.5 miles from where we live now. It was a little shocking and extremely exciting to see a SOLD sign on our new home already. Our current home doesn't even have a PENDING sign on it yet. lol I'm not complaining really, I love seeing that bold SOLD! marker in OUR YARD!!! Oh, I do want to mention that I can't get over how things "happen for a reason". This was one of the first homes we had our eye on from the vary start of our search months ago. It almost slipped through our fingers a couple months ago as it was pending. Unbelievably thankful and counting my lucky stars. :)
This past weekend proved to be a good one. We had a total of 4 showings lined up and received 2 offers. Pleasantly surprised to not have "haggled" with anyone on our home selling price. It's just reaffirmation that we did do a darn good job of updating and caring for this home. We learned who will be purchasing our home and are thrilled to know of them and are genuinely excited for their first home.
As soon as we signed their accepted offer we made a THIRD offer on the home we can't seem to get out of our thoughts. Hoping today brings good results. If it doesn't....the stress will surely set in on what we will do when closing comes around for our current home in 45 days.
Passing the two week mark lead to a steady flow of house showings. This weekend 2 different previous viewers came back. On top of that we have two more showings in the mix. One can only hope for multiple offers. We are heading out today to Ohio for a family reunion on the hubby's side. Perfect timing to get away and let contracts come in. Monday will definitely be interesting. We do know that one young couple with two little children have made an offer and we are waiting on our realtor to go over it with us. Things keep getting more real. Found myself up early this morning pulling all of our manuals from our upgrades we put in the house over the last 10 years. Not sure if the new owners will appreciate them or not.
