Ora pro nobis... [May. 3rd, 2010|02:42 pm]

The background, for those of you who might have missed it, is that our landlord told us that he's going to be transferred to the coast. He doesn't want to be an absentee landlord, so he's selling the house we live in. He'd be glad to sell it to us....

But he's asking $UmNo,000 and we can do better. So we started looking, and with the help of liadan_m (all hail!),we found twice the house for half the bucks. Plus the location is more universally satisfactory: closer to everything (except my work), including Camp Grandma, in the city but close enough to the county that Grandma is forgiving, etc.

So we offered a contract, and they have signed it.  Now the waiting begins...

It's a "short sale," which um isn't. As in "these things do not go quickly." We're hoping to close by mid-June, by which time I shall have no nails left at all, at all.

We'll be starting the packing way before then, though.  And the moving. I'm thinking we can starting throwing things back into Lemp storage.

But when all this is done, we should be back, baby! at Loughborough and Virginia, and will probably be getting back into the party-throwing business. Yay us!

Ora pro nobis...

Sorry to hear about the house--I was enamored of the location and the amount of land when we saw it in January--but have my fingers crossed that the new location works out.

I have a friend who lives off Loughborough! Yay for moving into better spaces--especially those that are less expensive.
