Oh my!


I really did it! I signed a Purchase Order Agreement for the house last night. Yikes! I went from being really excited to being really nervous & now I'm back to excited. The proposed closing date is April 18th (Madison's 5th Birthday!). The family has been keeping me very informed about the whole probate process. The heirs all received a letter today that informs them that the probate court has given permission to sell the house & that a buyer has been found. Each heir (there are 13 of them!) has to relinquish their right to the property & approve of the sale. On my end of the deal I have to secure financing & get the house inspected. I am meeting with a mortgage guy at a local bank tomorrow. I have already been preapproved with these guys but they haven't been very helpful or willing to communicate with me much up to this point. I'm not sure I'll use them but I do hope to get some useful information from them.
I'll keep you posted on what happens next! If anybody wants to help clean/paint/move my junk, let me know!!!

Congrats! I take it it's a done deal that all the heirs will relinquish rights to the property?

Wonderful! I'm really excited for you and hope things will go smoothly with the paper work stuff. I'll be out that way in the fall and would like to stop by and see the new place.

I've been checking back here frequently and wondering about the house - Congratulations! I hope all goes well for you. And, in regard to your previous post - yes I get that restless feeling - that's why I got my hair chopped off today, but that's much cheaper than a new car ;o)

How exciting!!!! I'll be out at Scioto Hills Camp in OH in November. Maybe we can plan a girls weekend at your place so we can all see it. Praying for wisdom for you.

I hope your grandma is doing well.
