This house selling business is driving us crazy. Yesterday was the deadline for our buyers to get their financing commitment. Didn’t happen. Minor glitch we were told. They need a few more days to get things lined up.

So we had two choices, say yes or no. If we say no, it’s back to the beginning to find another buyer. Not a pleasant thought at this point. So we said yes and gave them until Friday to get the bank/FHA deal done.

During the last 35 years my Mother-in-Law moved about every seven years. To be sure they weren’t moving across the country, but still it must have been a major PITA. My father-in-law (rest his soul) had to be a saint to put up with all this buying and selling of houses.

Anyways, stay tuned. Hopefully we get this thing nailed down on Friday.

    Whether you’re moving cross-town, or cross-country, moving is a MAJOR PITA. The whole prospect of putting everything into storage and renting when our first deal fell through here was enough that we took our #3 house – and we didn’t completely evaluate it. As a result, I didn’t really think through the “no garage issue”, nor sit in the area long enough to see if there were any major annoyances (which there are).
    Make sure, if you’re going right to another house, that you have completely evaluated everything about it. If the new place has anything you’re not used to dealing with (such as a crawlspace as opposed to a cellar), make sure everything’s 110% known to you.
    Looking back now, we should have rented for half a year and taken our time. It would have cost up front but would have been cheaper and better in the long run.
