update on me

I believe I've found the most perfect place to move! Now I just need to get DH to agree and save up for the deposit. We are going to look at it tonight. 

I'm so nervous though. Because if he agrees, then we need to get the sizable down payment together. Of course, we have to apply first and keep our fingers crossed that we get approved. 

I'm meeting with a realtor on Monday. She's going to help me with figuring out all the options we have with this house. Sadly, I believe that we will have to do a short sale. We've been trying to do a modification on it, but I just learned today that you can not do a second modification or at least that is what I've found online. 

I've been working in my kitchen. I'm gathering items to put into our yard sale, which I believe will be July 20 & 21. I will post for sure when I make a final decision on that. 

I've gotten Madalynn all set in preschool starting in the fall. I am working on daycare for Tuesdays. Next semester, I will be more mindful to only schedule my classes during the times that she is in preschool. It'll make it easier that way lol

I can't be online much with getting my house in order. I had decided that no matter what, whether we stay or go, it needs to be decluttered badly. 

That's all I can think of right now lol I can't promise I'll be on much this week. I'm not even half way done with my kitchen and really since the realtor is coming out Monday I need get the house cleaned in time.

Glad to hear from you. I hope that all continues to go well with your housing. Good luck with the yard sale too. Don't be too much of a stranger. :-)

good luck!!!  decluttering a house is hard work.  I know how much work we had to do when we sold our old house...

Took DH to see the townhouse I really like and it felt like he was just picking on it. It was like he was looking at it like he was buying the property. Fact of the matter is, we are not buying and he needs to concentrate on short term and not long term right now. I like the idea of getting a break from being completely responsible of a property. 

Hoping we can compromise.

I hope so. We've pretty much given up on staying at our current house, but in the long run, it'll probably be better to move on. In all honesty, we never planned on staying in this house longer than 5 years and now its been 12 years lol 

Its now between 2 places. DH hasn't seen the second one yet, so tomorrow we're going to do a walk through and then hopefully have a final decision by end of the weekend. I'm nervous about putting in an appication. I pray that whatever one we decide is a good fit for us we qualify for.

What'd you think of the 2nd place?
