It might be… It could be…

It is! Or at least it’s closer than it was. The second appraisal the bank requested last week went through fine, and now closing is being frantically discussed amongst the 2 real estate agents, 2 closing offices, 2 buyers, and 2 sellers. It’s like the Noah’s Arc of home selling over here.

I’m in the process of getting a payoff statement from our lender for ‘them’. I wonder if we’ll get to meet ‘them’ at closing? I’m picturing a big sheet stretched across the back of a cubicle farm, hiding 2 small framed men in khaki’s and striped polo shirts typing away on those calculators with the paper running out of the back. How very exciting…

Anyway, they are actually wanting to schedule closing for today, or at the latest tomorrow. I don’t know if they’ll be able to manage it, but the buyers are sure hoping for it! They closed on the sell of their house Friday and had to be out the next morning, I believe they’re staying with a daughter until they can move in our house (or should I say their new house?). So if anyone is counting on a quick closing it’s them!

That’s all I know for the moment, I’ll keep ya posted! (You are anxiously awaiting my next post, right?) 🙂

P.S. The cat is litter box trained once more! Huzzah!

    Keep sending good thoughts! There’s a lot to do but I think we can get it by Sunday evening at least. And I love the use of the word Turtled by the way, I might steal that. 😉
