We have outgrown this apartment. We outgrew it a long time ago, and started looking for houses. We made a purchase offer on one, and it was accepted by the sellers, but it was also a short sale, meaning that their bank had to approve it. In the midst of all of this, the bank sold the mortgage to another bank, and the whole thing fell apart. We found a house we liked better that was closer to where we wanted to be, put an offer in after looking at it once, and then wated.
The mortgage company lost paperwork, needed more paperwork, and in general tied the whole process up for several months. They finally get everything they need, and set a closing date. For today.
We were thrilled to have it all done and over with. We acquired a golden retriever puppy two weeks ago(having put the deposit down when we were told we would absolutely be in the house by the first week of February) who isn't doing too well in the apartment and needs a yard to run in. We need more room. I especially wanted to move before I got too much larger and uncomfortable.
And then the realtor called today to tell us that the owner, in her will, left the house to 17 people. I did not know this was even a possibility but apparently it is. All 17 people have to sign the papers, and 3 of them haven't, so we're waiting. Indefinately.
Makes me want to bang my head against the wall...they said maybe next week we could tenatively reschedule a closing date.
