New House??


We are trying to buy a house right now. We put an offer in on a pretty cool place yesterday. It's in Tustin and seems like a good amount of space for us for a decent price. The only hard part is that it's what is called a "short sale" or a "short pay" situation. This means that the seller owes their bank more money than they are asking for the house. So our offer has to be approved by the seller and their lender. We have heard that lenders can take up to 30 days to approve the offer. We are praying and hoping that it works out, but mostly praying that we would be able to submit to and be content with whatever happens. It's hard because once you put an offer down on something your mind starts getting excited about it and thinking about everything you could do to the place.

Yay I'm so excited for you. This is a great time to buy and it sounds like you got in a foreclosure or something like that. Great job! I also know if this house for sale in Idaho if you are interested :).

They are NOT moving to Idaho!!! If they did, they would be breaking the super secret plan for our two families to to gradually move closer and closer together! In fact, next time we move, we're buying the house next door ;)
