You may remember that we’re getting ready to PCS.
We’re trying to buy a house in DC and we KNOW the house we want to make an offer on (and the price on it just dropped $24K yesterday!). Our Realtor in Maryland is ready to make an offer for us as soon as we give her the ok. We’re preapproved for a mortgage contingent on either having a signed lease for our house in GA or me having a nonconditional job offer.
If one of those conditions works out, the rest would fall into place – if I get a job, we don’t have to worry about renters (although they’d be nice) and we can still get a house. If we get can get renters, we’ll be ok even if I’m not working for a bit longer and we can get a house.
I’ve signed letters of intent with a company contingent on them getting a contract awarded to them, which they should find out soon. I’m also talking to another company that is very promising. But no firm offers yet.
We’re working with our property manager, prepping everything in our house, and showing our house to potential renters, but no lease signed yet.
I’m going crazy knowing that everything is so close to working out, but just not quite there. If some people would just sign a lease… if I could get just a job offer… if we could put the offer on the house… problems all solved.
No more stress.
But there’s nothing I can do about any of this.
So I’m just making my house as clean as I can, polishing up my resume, and hoping no one else likes the house we like.
And maybe I’ll magically get a job offer this week. Or renters.
Toss me some good luck if you’ve got any extra laying around please! We need all the luck we can get.
