Hi everyone! Things around here are so busy. The big news is that we are buying a house and closing on it by Dec. 31. I am so excited! It has happened just in the past week. It's twice the size of our house now which is only 1300 sq.ft and it is sooooo nice! The best part is that is was reposessed by the bank so we got a great deal on it! So good that we can handle both mortgages until we sell this one. It's needs a little cleaning and some painting but other than that it is beautiful! My stomach has been in knots and a bit touchy with everything going on. I am so glad that we had a snow day today so that I could catch up on some things. I haven't wrapped a single present and I just started to do some baking because Noah was worried Santa wouldn't have any cookies! Anyways just thought I'd share the news!!!

That's great news! Hubby and I are planning to buy out first house in a few months and I was already stressing about it! I'm okay now, but I think once the holidays are out of the way my mind will wander back to that stress/anxiety. But it's GOOD stress.... right?

Thanks, I hope so too! Where we live right now, real estate prices are CRAZY - like $500,000 for a normal 3-bedroom house - no joke. It's enough to make you nauseous just thinking about it. We're actually hoping hubby can get a job up north where houses cost a MUCH more normal $150-$250K. Just thinking about having to move so far, leave our friends, and get settled in a whole new place just to fulfill our dream of having our own house is rather depressing. But it's either that or live in an apartment forever, because even renting a house here is ridiculous!

Congratulations! That's awesome. We had our house up about a year ago for over 8 mo. and nothing. We're pretty crowded in here so we'll have to get moving soon, too but we're not all that hopeful here. Glad you got a stroke of good luck cuz most of Michigan sucks right now, as you know!

That's great!!! Congratulations on your new place and hope your current ones sells fast. I have heard people say that when they are empty they sell faster.

I'm right with you! My stomoach is in knots today and so is my husbands. I will be packing the kids in an hour to drop them off at my in-laws and then meet my hubby at the realtor to sign the contigency offer on a new house! As you know we have the same size house. This new one has 5 bd and 2bth and is over 1000sq ft more than our current one! We still need to sell our house too but if it's meant to be, it will.

It is funny that we are doing this at the same time. How did it go with the inspector? We are going to have to figure out who we are going to go with because.... they accepted our offer last night! We still have to sell our place and we can not afford both at the same time.

Congrats!! That's great! Everything went pretty well with the inspector. The two main things with the house is that we have to replace the water heater due to water in the basement when the sunk pump backed up because they turned off the electricity and the enclosed porch off the back is not sealed correctly so water gets in there. We were actually thinking of opening up the back porch anyways so that wouldn't be a big deal. We tried to get them to pay for the water heater, but because it's the bank that owns it and it is a "as-is" sale they wouldn't budge. We can't complain because we are getting a heck of a deal on the house. I hope you have good luck with selling yours. And Happy Holidays to you and your family!!!
