There will be lots of house updates (I hope) and you’ll be sick of hearing about it by the time we’ve moved.
As of this afternoon, the appraisal has been ordered, the inspection has been ordered, and the closing date is set for less than a month away. So much is running through my mind.
Addie has chosen her bedroom. She actually wants it to be yellow and teal. I told her once we move in, she and I can go to Hobby Lobby and pick out what she wants (or SOME of what she wants) and we’ll go from there.
It’s all I can do to not post all the pictures but the current owner’s stuff is still in there and I think that’s a bit disrespectful (for me to post their pictures – not for them to still have their stuff in their own home!).
They seem like the nicest people. We haven’t even see the house yet and are trying to plan a trip to see it so we’ve asked about dates and here’s his response:
As for visiting, you are most welcome anytime you would like, as many times as you would like for as long as you would like!! This will soon be your home and we want nothing more than to make this as smooth and painless as possible and to give you as much peace of mind as possible as you fall in love with our home!! Our door is always open to you two, just say when…
Everything is going along as expected and I doubt I’ll have more updates til after the appraisal and inspection, which will all happen before we get there to see the house. Are we crazy . . or brave to be buying a house we haven’t seen? I’m not worried. When we moved to MO, the house we bought was the one I had chosen from the internet and it was the best house ever.
There is a bit more . . Vince talked to the realtor here who had sold us this place and she said things are selling like crazy here and she feels our house will sell quickly. Vince also talked to a friend who does banking here and he said people are always looking for houses like ours in the location where we are. We still haven’t decided if we’re going to put out house on the market or wait til after we’ve been in the new house for a while and be sure we don’t want to keep our Texas house too. It actually costs less to keep this place than to have the apartment in MO. The good news is . . we don’t have to decide right now. My biggest concern is if we decide to keep it, will we really come here enough to make it worth keeping it. I guess if we don’t, we can always put it on the market then.
My other concern is Cat. No way could she live where we’re going. I have friends who live in the country and they might would take her, assuming I could catch her again. I’m not going to move off and leave her here at an empty house or even at a house where we only come every few weeks. She needs full time caretakers. I have found someone who will take my chickens and she might will take Cat too — I didn’t ask her yet.
