Moving Update: March

This month was packed full of housing details. A lot of emails were sent and received...

The first day that our house was on the market was March 3, 2015. Our realtor came and took pictures of the house and posted it on the market later that evening.

We had our first showing on Saturday, March 7, 2015 from 1p-2p.

Our first offer was on Sunday morning (from the family that looked at the house on Saturday). We negotiated slightly with the move-in-date and we accepted an offer on Monday, March 9, 2015.

We have a closing date of May 27th, which means that we will move the weekend of May 23rd.  Ten and a half weeks...oh goodness.

The inspection was on Saturday, March 14, 2015. The inspector found no issues and no termite damage so we moved one step forward.

We went to Cleveland the weekend of March 14th to find a rental home. After hitting a few road blocks, I think we found our home. We put in an application on Monday, March 16th. Our application was accepted on Monday, March 23rd. We now have to work on signing the lease and we'll have our own place!

The appraiser for our house came on Monday, March 23, 2015. He took pictures of the house and was gone ten minutes later. On Monday, March 26, 2015 we were told that the appraisal went well and no updates are needed.

 We signed our contract for our home in Cleveland on Thursday, March 26, 2015. Our realtor says we will now be working with the landlord directly for some of the last minute details. So excited to have a house!
