Just an Update

Monday, we received the final answer: "no, we will not underwrite your property with the big barn." So, I met with a new lender and ... here we go again, gathering documents and signing papers. The new lender read the appraisal report and didn't see why it was rejected. A new appraisal will be done, a new loan drafted and it will all hopefully be approved by the end of July. This lender writes loans for large equestrian properties in the Sacramento area. Our property is peanuts, easy-peasy to them.

In the meantime, the seller does not want to rent to us. I've rescheduled the delivery of our furniture for August. We may live in a hotel for while after my corporate housing time is up.

Keep your fingers crossed that it goes smoothly this time. The seller is, understandably, a bit pissy about the whole thing.

I'm feeling very tired.

I will be spending next weekend in Santa Barbara with Camille. Its our annual mother/daughter weekend. I'll take pictures to share but I'm not sure that there will be wi-fi in our tent. :)

  1. What will Brett be doing this weekend? Moving again to storage in 108 degree heat. At least I got 6 days off, not.

  2. Ahh, the joys of real estate, it ranks right up there at the top of the list of miseries. It did seem like things were going a bit too smoothly. I certainly hope it gets worked out for you soon, I know you must be terribly stressed. Good luck.

  3. Sounds like a real ordeal for all concerned. Keeping fingers (and toes) crossed for a smooth resolution.

  4. The animals can still stay there right? And I bet Brett has already made some improvements to the ring and pastures. How frustrating.

  5. It's a stressful situation for you but it seems like the new company will be able to come through.

    Enjoy the weekend with your daughter.

  6. Oh man. Man, I am so sorry for you. Moving is SO STRESSFUL, it's just awful. I'm sorry you're having such a hard time with it, and I sincerely hope that everything works out smoothly and in double-time moving forward. Sending positive thoughts your way!

  7. i am hoping it will only be 2 more weeks...

  8. What a pain in the neck. I assume you can keep the animals where they are. My parents had a retched time selling their house this year. It seems like real estate practices rarely put the person first.

  9. Moving house is one of the most stressful events in a persons life but I think your house move has got to be one of the most traumatic I've ever heard of.
    It's a shame the seller doesn't want to rent to you, life would be so much simpler. I hope it all goes through really quickly for you x

  10. As talesfromprovence said - a super stressful time, even when things aren't (unnecessarily) complicated.

    You and Brett please take extra good care of yourselves... (eat well, vitamins, plenty of rest, etc!)

  11. I am in agreement with Kate... I am sorry it is being such a headache!

  12. Darn. I hope they will at least let you keep the animals there, perhaps paying a daily boarding fee?

    Sure hope everything gets resolved soon,



Thanks so much for commenting! I love the conversation.
