An offer and the waiting game

Hopefully I'm not jinxing us, or the offer we submitted on this house over the holiday weekend by posting this, but I'm just a little excited at the thought that it might, possibly, hopefully, be ours soon! 

The house is a pre-approved short sale, which means we've got a 3 to 4 week waiting period before we know if the bank accepts our offer. But the offer we made was essentially the asking price, and there are no other offers on it, so we're really hopeful it will be. 

For now I won't share any details on the house other than we feel really lucky to have found it. 

(I don't want to jinx us any more than I am by posting this. :))

So now we're kind of in limbo and playing the waiting game. 

(Insert Jeopardy theme song.)

We'll see....

  7. we are in your SAME boat! Our offer is accepted on a house, but my husband's tax info is so weird, so we're hoping financing goes through okay before we can close. So exciting though!
