Selling our current townhouse. Went on the market and had an offer in 6 hours for over the asking price. Score....now we really need to find something! We took the offer and they are going FHA/first time buyer, so they needed a little time. That was fine because we hadn't stated to look yet at for a new house a couple states away yet. We went Friday, June 30th, to look at ten different places. We found 3 we loved, and put an offer in on the one that we could see ourselves in the most. Our back up has been up for a while so if for some reason inspections and/or appraisals mess something up, we have a back-up!

 

Will check back in as the process continues!

 

edit: Added interest rate and appraisal date.

edit: 7/20 Appraisal came back at purchase price

edit 7/10 Clear to Close

Thanks to this forum I was able to rebuild my credit a few years ago up into the 800's and also had to rebuild my fiance's.  This mortgage forum also offered a lot of insight and helped me figure out the mortgage process.

Hey...long time! How have you been! Moving even closer to you now!

 

Update...Inspection happened yesterday. Started from the basement and worked up. Nothing at all and I thought we were done. He then peeked in the attic...Mold!! Ugh. Oh well. Remediation was put in the works by both Realtors yesterday...hoping to come to an agreement once the report comes back.
