Everyone keeps asking us how the house stuff is going. Well, we don’t really have much to say that hasn’t been said: selling a house is tiring and emotionally draining. I think our last update was right after the inspection. We did get the full inspection report back … it was about what we expected.
We’ve been sitting with the inspection response in front of us for over a week now. It’s due today at 5:00. We just keep staring at the numbers and estimates given to us to remedy the issues, and we have no idea what to do. It sucks. Like we’ve mentioned before, we negotiated below what we were comfortable with in order to get under contract … and now, every dollar is just a slap in the face. So, we’re faced with some pretty tough decisions today. We’ve already decided there’s no way we can compromise our financial future just to move to Oregon. The fact is: we are still relatively young, we have college debt to pay off, and we want to start a family in the next couple of years. Getting out of this house is just one of our dreams. Are we really ready to sacrifice everything else? I don’t think so.
So, we’ll figure out what we’re comfortable with … we’ll send them our response, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed. We’re hoping to have everything figured out by the end of the week … Then, we’ll have a real update for everyone.
I just realized how depressing this post seems. We’re actually surprisingly optimistic about the whole situation. While I hate being in limbo … we know it will all work out the way it’s supposed to. We are happy, and that’s really all that matters in the whole scheme of things.
