One door closes
Yesterday afternoon we were finally able to close on our old house. This was a very long and stressful process for us, which we never really elaborated about on this blog. It was taking a lot of the fun out of building a new home for us, so we kept quiet about it. To preface this a bit our buyer hit a snag with an inheritance property she and a sibling inherited some years back. Let's just say things can really divide a family when money gets involved, as sad as that is. So without going in to lots of detail, she began a legal battle with her sibling and caused a massive delay with buying our house. It all came to an end yesterday though and we finally closed. I cannot explain the massive weight that is lifted off our shoulders now. We can finally focus entirely on our new house and know we have our down payment in the bank. Being homeless never felt so good (we are staying with family while we build)! Let's just hope Sandy stays away from all of our new homes. The house we just closed on was in a waterfront neighborhood with canals running throughout; we feel like we dodged a bullet by closing yesterday ;) Stay safe everyone!
