House #8: First Contract

September 14, 2009

After several showings of The 16-Bid House over the weekend, we received two written offers, and several other interested buyers… So as not to extend this deal too long (baby is coming any day now), we decided to try to negotiate the best offer to where we wanted it, and get the paperwork signed as […]

House #8: Clear to Close

August 25, 2009

We got word this weekend that The 16-Bid House may actually be ready for us to purchase. If you recall, we got an offer accepted on this house back in March, and due to months of title issues, the seller has been unable to actually sell it to us. That’s the good news… The bad […]

Yup, The 16-Bid House is still having difficulties getting to closing. As you probably know, the seller has been trying to get clear title on this one (so we can buy it) since March, and still no luck… Last week, my wife sent the agent an email mentioning that the contract was about to expire […]
