So this is now the third post in a row where I share that we have yet to move. I KNOW.
After three (!!!) extensions it turns out our buyers were not approved for their financing. Despite multiple confirmations from their team that they would be. How this was not discovered prior to the first closing date, or even by the second closing date, is something I have yet to wrap my head around. But it’s what happened so we’re all moving forward. I have moved through many, many emotions with this and have settled in a zone I call “hopeful disappointed-ness.” We have dropped these buyers (which in retrospect, we probably should have done 2 closings dates ago), re-listed our house, and explored new options. The house that we want is still on the market, so hopefully we can sell our home quickly enough to get back under contract with it- as that seller is, thankfully, still willing to work with us.
Our house has been back on the market for almost a week now and we’ve had about 8 showings, with more scheduled throughout this week and in to the weekend. I know all the downfalls of our home, but since I also know all the awesome of our home it hurts my heart a little when people pass over it. It’s such a lovely little house and I’m trying to remain optimistic that someone will buy it soon.
In the meantime, it’s still a very empty house and all of our belongings are currently sitting in a POD in our driveway. We’re working to slowly move some things out of the POD and in to our house (essentials like clothes and kitchenware), but we don’t want to unpack too much since we’re still hoping to move within the next two months.
At this point, I think I’m going to take a bit of a leave of absence from this here blog. It’s such a bummer to come back week after week with no updates, no pictures, no progress. I can’t do house projects because our house is empty, and I can’t share plans because we’re in limbo, etc etc etc. So I’ll be back when I’ve got something more secure to share! 🙂
