Home Sweet Home (almost)

UPDATED: WE finally Closed. I am now eyeball deep in debt. Wahoo. I hate buying a home. It has got to be the most frustrating thing in the world.

We are going to close on our house soon. The trip to this point has been nearly perfect. But each small bump nearly killed us. Take for instance the "already offered" bump. Not once, not twice, but three times we found a house and told our agent "Go for it". Three times he called us back to tell us that someone else had already put it "under contract".

Then there is the one where we paid for an inspection and found damages to the tune of several grand. The seller offered a five hundred dollar allowance. Adios muchacho. And the hunt goes on.

Finally we find the best of all. And the place is awesome. Thanks to a miscommunication, the appraisal didn't happen. Delay of a week. Then thanks to someone doing about thirty credit inquiries our loan bombed and we had to re-qualify.

We are supposed to close before the end of the year. Or else.....
