More 6/19 Expressions
The house buying saga is over! After the listing agent on the foreclosed property told my husband's agent that he wanted to "sit" on the offer - we are talking less than a $4,000 difference - my husband sent his agent a listing of more houses he wanted to see on Monday - tomorrow. Funny, my husband received a text to let him know that his offer has been accepted a few hours ago. Now, we are hoping for a fast closing. We are cash buyers - we will pull a small amount from our HELOC at 2.7% and pay it back in 4 months. This is because we do not want to deplete savings since we are saving for our daughter's education and we do not want to cash out of our equities at this time - seems to be slighly down this past month and we do not want to pay additional taxes and it is just easier to go to the bank and ask for cashier's check. I have the Lowes cards from Plastic Jungle and my 10% off coupon ready to go :) Still haven't heard from the chamber if I can raise a goat and 2 chickens :( Oh well, it would be a couple of years before I did it anyways . . .
