New House

We are trying to buy a new house. Trying, being the operative word. We've put offers on several houses, with no luck. We finally found a house we love, it's the perfect size, perfect layout, and perfect price, and not just a house we'll eventually grow out of and have to upgrade, but a house that we can stay in until our children are grown, and even longer depending where life takes us. Our offer was accepted by the seller March 8th, but it's a short sale, so it has to go through the banks that the sellers owe a bunch of money to. We got approval from the bank on the 1st mortgage, and we finally got approval from the same bank that holds their 2nd mortgage. But there was a hiccup because the 2nd mortgage didn't release the seller from liability, and so we wait some more while they negotiate a deal. Things are still looking up and we will more than likely get the house, but it's really annoying to sit here waiting, hoping that every phone call is our real estate agent telling us yes, we got the house, or no, we didn't. Either way, I'd like to know! Here is a link to our maybe future house. There is work to do to it, but it's all cosmetic.

Okay, so the link doesn't work anymore because it was taken off of the listing page because it's all ours! I will put up pictures of before and after. We've got some work to do before we can move in, but we are so dang excited! Can't wait for closing, which if all goes well with the appraisal should be the 20th of June!
