yes we did get keys finally! it has been a very hectic weekend as i also had a bachelorette party to attend in Lake Tahoe this weekend.
We got the key on friday, saturday morning i drove to Tahoe, came back very early Sunday morning. That night we went to the house and turned the A/C on so my fiance's brother in law could clean the carpets for us. it was 108 so he couldn't come out til about 9pm. So we've started out on the wrong foot with the neighbors have a very noisy carpet cleaning van outside late at night. Not so bad though as he was done by 10:15. We spent all day moving yesterday and now my house is a complete mess. Luckily it was only 103 yesterday and breezy so while we were sweating our faces off the breeze kept things a little cooler.
Even more exciting i finally get tv/internet tomorrow again at home. a week without it is really HARD. what did people ever do before these glorious inventions???

Wow, sounds like everyone has had some trying times. I guess I'm in the same boat. Found the house, put in an offer, seller countered, I accepted. Had my inspections, ended up with a few minor problems, or so I thought.
The house has a well and septic, the well passed, and originally the septic did, now I find out Monday that the airiation system in it wasn't done correctly to the tune of $5,600 for the fix, and the sump pump isnt to code to the tune of $3,600 to fix. The seller isn't sure they want to repair for the amount that I'm buying the house, so Ive been waiting to find out if I have to walk away. It's in the sellers hands.
If I have to walk, they will repair and relist for more money. This just stinks!

Hello everyone :-)
I submitted an offer on the cutest house last night (not the short sale). I'm sitting here on pins and needles waiting to hear back. I offered the full asking price with just 3K back for closing. I would think this would be a no-brainer for the seller...just accept my offer already!! :-) Hopefully I'll be back with good news.
