Movin', movin', movin'...

Well it is official....we are moving! ...and you all thought it would never happen (actually I was beginning to wonder myself). For some who have been keeping up with the whole saga, we elected not to buy the house that we have been interested in the past two months. Since they rejected our contingent offer twice, and wouldn't budge on their price (even though it had been on the market 17 months), we completely shifted gears to a new construction home around the corner from ours. We first looked at it a week ago, and after falling in love with the layout, space, flat backyard and wonderful details to the interior...we made an offer that was agreed upon and signed this past Thursday! Steve and I couldn't be happier about our future new digs, but it is all coming at us quickly. You see we are closing on the new home Monday the 17th (yes one short week from today)! Since we didn't sign a contingent deal, we were anxious to see what would happen with our current abode. We have had a ton of traffic while it has been on the market the past 6-7 weeks (especially considering the time of year), so we were hopeful an offer would come sooner rather than later. It surprisingly came sooner, in fact we signed a contract with the buyers of our home today! They are anxious to close since they are currently homeless and staying in a hotel, but we pushed them off until after Christmas, December 28th. So, if all goes well at the inspection tomorrow...this could be a done deal. Who knows though, they have been a penny-pinching, greedy couple asking for everything (and I mean everything). Since we both agree that we have conceded enough, and we are not desperate to close immediately, we're not afraid to tell them to beat it if they ask for another nickel. So, stay tuned as our drama unfolds over this upcoming week.
