madamwitty is recycling an old profile picture to represent my current state
I may have sounded a bit pessimistic in my last entry about how bad the condition of the house is. It is true that the house is in kind of shabby condition, but mostly it was my paranoia that the seller could find out my 43T identity, read my entry, and find out that DH and I love the house. And that would reduce our bargaining power.
The seller did end up giving us a credit for replacing the roof, not as much as we asked for but more than we actually expected :-) So, yesterday we signed all the paperwork, including the mortgage documents and releasing our final contingencies! The only thing left for us to do is to transfer the down payment & closing cost funds into the escrow account, and wait for the seller to fulfill their side of the bargain. It looks like this is really going to happen. DH and I are very excited.
We close on Dec. 29!
