I'm pretty emotionally attached to our current house. We pretty much remodeled the whole place and maybe thats why I feel such an attachment. That, and my parents are attached, since it was a huge project for them as well. So when Shawn brought up the idea of renting our old house I was all about it. Cause then I get to keep it...forever and ever. But after some logical thinking we decided that having a rental property is probably not something were ready to take on...especially when Shawn works out of town a lot.
Thus, we are meeting with a realtor on Monday to discuss a sales price and possibly list our house!
In the meantime, someone is looking at my grandmother's house - so lets just keep our fingers cross that someone buys her home and she can buy ours!!!
That being said, Ive been dealing with the mortgage company about qualifying without the rental income if our current home isnt sold by the closing date on our new house, plus trying to decide who were getting home-owners insurance through (were going to bundle cars and home so were trying to get a really good deal)...plus on top of all of that the Holidays are coming up. Which means were busy anyway....THEN to top it all off - shawn may be getting an offer from his company to relocate 4 HOURS EAST of pittsburgh...which means were screwed out of a deposit on the Rosecliff and were moving. We wont know whats going on until Mid / End of November....love the waiting game. Its so much fun.
Literally I am living off of "comfort-time tea" from Salada...to try to calm myself down.
I just called our Rep to see when they were planning on framing - she said they had hoped that framing would be done by this week - but instead they are just starting the first framing crew on Monday. Which means that our closing date is being pushed to January sometime.
Which, considering all of the above, its better for us in the long run....and I may be able to get my christmas tree up in our old house just one more time before 1. moving into a new home or 2. moving 4 hours east.
Happy Building Everyone & try the tea, it is wonderful!
