Excitement!

Oh, we are so excited! We got word today that our offer on a house has been accepted! And like actually accepted by the bank so it's for reals this time!

It's a short sale, so we've been in limbo since the beginning of July. Yup, it's taken over 3 months from the time the sellers said we were the highest and best offer to the time the sellers' bank said OK, you can have the house.

Now we have to go get a mortgage, so it's still another month or so before we close and get to call it ours.

Anyone out there who is considering a short sale better be prepared and have patience.
