Almost There!

I got word late last night that the seller’s bank has accepted my contract on the house, at an even better price that I’d originally offered. How strange.

So, within the next week, I have to have the house inspected, finalize all paperwork, have the settlement and move. I am sure I will look like the Beverly Hillbillies going back and forth between the old house and the new one. beverly-hillbilliesI work well if there’s a deadline. When I moved to the UK, I finally bought a plane ticket, so I would quit faffing around and get on with things. I have my notebook with everything written out so I won’t forget, I am making notes and calls and I should be able to get everything done.

The plan is to pack stuff in my current house, move things that I still want to the new house next Thursday, and then anything that’s left here will be sold at a “yard” sale. Anything left over after that will be taken by a hauler that I know. junk So, if posting is light and Etsy listings are heavy in the next week, you’ll know why!

    I wanted to check with you, how long have you been going around on this short sale? I am considering a purchase of a short sale and I just don't want alot of run around.

  14. Congrats on the purchase coming to fruition, its very exciting. You may already know this, but its worth repeating - don't use the home inspector your Realtor or mortgage lender recommends. Find your own. Why? Because vendors recommended by other vendors such as your realtor or bank tend to have symbiotic relationships. Find your own home inspector who works for you and is not tied to another entity. I wish I had followed that advice 4 short years ago.
