Buying a House - Help?

Somehow, it seems whenever I post in the blessings list, everything turns out OK.

Hubby and I are buying a house. We've past the subjects-removal date (we now have an extension to next Friday). The mortgage broker has been jerking us around, "We'll know tomorrow. We'll know tomorrow." Now, we won't know until Tuesday. We are sooooo frusterated with her, but at this point we can't choose anyone BUT her. (The problem is not financing as we were approved for faaaaaar above and beyond what we're buying this place for, but getting finance approval for a home on Native land. The band that owns the land are great people, long time family friends of Hubby's, and were happy to sign all legal documents, but the mortgage broker decided to not return ANYONE'S calls for two days, which made us go past the subjects-removal date. GGRRRR.)

Blessings for our mortgage approval to be QUICK and the rest of everything to go smoothly would be greatly appreciated. Hubby and I have made ourselves physically sick with worrying and the stress of it. We just want this done and over with. We have a TONNE to do. Please?

And then I can post about how happy we are with the new house and post pictures of the second kitty we're going to get and our awesome yard that I can run nekked in that will be filled with edible growing things!!

I'll light a candle for you Crazy... I've been waiting since to hear details since you first let me know you were looking.

HOLY POTATO SAUCE YOU GUYS WORK FAST!

Without fail, I put a request to the blessings board, and voila.

:hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:

The approval went through!! Tomorrow the home inspection, which I think will go well considering the most recent one was great.

Thank you all for your blessings! And to the PL Gods. :lol: Sometimes I think they work independently and deliver blessings.

Kitsune, it's a four-bedroom, 1100 sqr feet, HUGE healing room, a private yard (gardens and nekked beltaine celebrations, here I come!), and it's QUIET! No more jerks yelling at their kids and invading my personal space. We're flipping it in a year - lots to do reno-wise (painting, new stairs, fix the foundation at one corner, tear down/possibly replace the patio, new bathroom fan, ceiling work, etc. Good thing we get wood for free, have a lot of contacts, and don't mind a bit of back-breakin labour!). That should give us enough to buy our land and build our cabin in a year or two (we are getting the place at a SMOKIN' deal because the previous owners are desperate to sell), then babies and then in a few years we'll be debt free and can run nekked through the fields with our kidlets and homestead and omigosh I am sooooo happy!!!

And no stress when we move in. I've given myself a week to power wash/scrub the whole place top to bottom as well as to move things over. Woo hoo!

That's an insane amount of work Crazy, but it sounds like you're all ready for it. I can't wait to see how far you've gotten in October (I will be purchasing my tickets and signing my registration stuff over next week some time!).

When's your possession date? :-o

June 24th, and now that the home inspection is done, the house has magically been transformed from a 4-bedroom into a 3-bedroom........ We have one one that is literally collapsing on itself.

OH WELL! Lots of work and lots of practice for our cabin!!!!
