Yayyyyy!! It’s SO exciting, isn’t it? I didn’t sleep the night before we closed. I had been driving by quite often in the week leading up to closing, and saw when the moving van was there to move the previous owners out. It felt so real after that! Congrats!!

Yay for settlement! Such an exciting time…when we bought our house we ended up settling on Christmas Eve! We parked the truck and moved in on Boxing Day. GL! :)

Our sellers took TWO EXTRA DAYS to get out of the house even though they were supposed to hand over ownership at signing.  We didn’t rush them because we wanted to make sure they did some GD cleaning…  It sucked.

You’re so lucky. We’re still searching. We’ve seen about 18 or 19 houses. We are running out of time cuz our current lease is up in May. I’m getting worried :-(

The build-up to closing is so exciting! We would do random drive-bys of our house during the waiting time. The weekend before closing we drove by and the driveway had 2 huge moving trucks in it. I had been holding back the emotion the entire time, staying all calm and cool and detached. But in that moment, seeing those moving trucks, I cried tears of joy. After 18 months, we were really in the home stretch and I finally let myself believe that the house would truly be ours.

@lisha_1988:  Yay! Congrats, I hope everything went smoothly. Worst case scenario you get a new addition to the family (the birdy)–your 1st house warming gift!

 

 

@Rubbs:  You sound just like me. We have been looking since Sept. Made offers on approx 5 homes. Got accepted to 1–then backed out because the inspection was too concerning for us.

Our lease ends in June and I’m in panic mode–it seemed liek just yesterday we had months to spare–but with the rapid increase in property costs and low inventory its crucn time! I wish you the best of luck with your search–I’m sure you will find something soon!
