Keeping up with things around here has become such a habit that when I don't stop by for a few days it feels like forever. Life is hectic, y'all.
1. Our house is under contract after being on the market for four days.
2. We don't have a house to move to.
Let me explain. We've been browsing the market since before Christmas but recently got more serious about it. Last week we found a house we loved and submitted an offer. We put ours on the market. When you're putting in an offer, your house really should be on the market (unless you want two homes!). We hurried to get our offer in the very first day the house was listed....along with five other families. We upped our offer. Long story short - we didn't get it.
A few days later (and a handful of showings), we get a great offer on our house. We accept. Inspection is on Friday. We have no house to move to. That same day we see a house pop up that we're interested in and rush to do a walk-through. The idea is to get an offer in ASAP if we like it to avoid having to compete again. We like the house and put in an offer. That was two days ago.
Hopefully we hear something back today. If my posts around here don't seem as thought out for the next few weeks, you know why. I don't have a moving box in the house. My Mother In Law asked me today if I've started packing. Ummm, no.
I just learned we are moving next month not even 48 hours ago. Do I need to start packing yet? Now? Maybe?
So in a matter of five days we put in an offer, put our house on the market, accepted an offer and then put in another offer. Busy is an understatement. Oh, and I've been trying to sort through closets and weed out clothes and such. Fun fun. Hopefully my next update will be good! Fingers crossed.
