Seller just accepted my offer to buy
I'm new here, well, kind of new. I posted years ago to the garden forums, so long ago I re-registered as I don't have any of the old information.
I'm so exited and yet nervous too. I have a list of things to do, financial documents the lender needs, inspector, etc.
I've read some of the threads about the things that can go wrong. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Been looking in the Austin area for months now. Inventory is low, and the good ones go fast - sometimes in a matter of hours - over asking price.
The bad ones just languish.
For once, I had the best offer on a good one. When I went to see it with my Realtor, there was a couple waiting for us to be done so they could look at it. And when we left, there was another couple waiting after that!
I'm going to have to break my lease. Oh well. Good rentals go fast, all my landlord has to do is put a sign in the yard and within hours she will have multiple callers wanting to rent.
Still, I am sure she will take what she is entitled to.
I wonder, does the fact that the walk in closet door knob does not work from the inside and locked me in there recently count? Probably not. Even if I did have to pound on the floor for 30 minutes to get her to come over and let me out.
She did tell me I am a good tenant. But still, I am sure she will keep whatever she can.
It's been a tough year. Got divorced last summer, been under a lot of job stress, have a disability that makes life just *that* much harder.
I'm looking forward to the future now. I'll keep you guys posted as to how it goes. Glad I found y'all. :-)
