Do you ever have so many things going on at one time that you're not sure which way is up? But you don't want to complain because you know many people dealing with FAR more significant problems?
Yeah, me too.
That's why I have this blog. I can whiiiinnnnneeee all I want :).
We spent most of this last summer working on our house to make it irresistible to potential buyers.
When we bought this house, we made some classic first-timer mistakes. Namely, we didn't bother checking on their future plans for our street. Turns out, they planned to make it a "major collector". That's a nice way of saying "we're going to turn your street into a subdivision freeway".
So we figured we needed an irresistible house to overcome the obvious flaw we can do nothing about.
Everyone loved the house, hated the street (duh, that's why WE wanted to move!).
Finally a single guy (perfect for this location) saw the house and loved it. He made an offer the Monday before Thanksgiving and we close December 23!
Yay, yay, yay!!!!!!!!!!
We don't have anywhere to live.
There was very, very, very little on the market that had what we were looking for: a little land, extra garage (if possible), desolate street, etc...
Long story short, we made an offer last night on a house and it was accepted. We close on 12/30 and will have to stay with my parents for a week or so (Merry Christmas mom and dad!).
