The Hunt to Homeownership: Things Take a Turn, and We Wait

Last time I told you about our first big disappointment.  This time, I'll tell you how things took a turn in a different direction!

After we found out that our offer wasn't chosen by the sellers of that cute little picket-fence-surrounded condo, I was sad.  I had promised myself I wouldn't be, but I couldn't help it, I really loved that place, and so did my Handsome Hubs.

So, in short my mourning period, I was surprised to hear from my real estate agent that the original offer the sellers took had already fallen through, and they wanted to know if we were still interested.

Uh, yeah we're interested!
Paperwork ensued, and soon enough we were "under contract" with the owners of the home.
Unfortunately this essentially means next to nothing as we offered on a short sale.  Thus began the waiting.  The seemingly endless waiting.

And that's where we are.
Stuck waiting and waiting.

I won't tell you exactly where we are on the timeline until we get a final answer, but I'll tell you this much - we are eerily close to that last red arrow on the right, so cross your fingers and hope for a happy update soon!
