Back to the drawing boards

Well, let me start by saying thank you to everyone who offered up advice and words of hope on the short sale house situation!

As of this morning the decision has been made for me! I've just learned that the house isn't even IN short sale yet, the listing agent is scheduled to talk to the bank today actually. The current mortgage was for near $140k, and they still owe a good majority of it. I have no plans on offering anywhere near $100k (let alone more) for that house in it's current state of disrepair, and I also don't want to sit and twidle my thumbs waiting for it to go through the motions into short sale and THEN wait the many weeks that short sale negotiations take.

So... it's back to the drawing boards for this chick. I joked in the beginning that I wouldn't be heartbroken if it didn't work out because it doesn't have a front porch. I'm back on the search for my front porch I can call home!

It wasn't meant to be! That other house is adorable! I can totally see you living in it and hosting lavish dinner parties!

It will all work out! The first house we loved was in short sale, and we didn't want to deal with it so we kept looking. Now we own a WAY better house that wasn't in short sale! Have faith! :)

that house wasn't meant to be! Looking around for a house can be such a frustrating situation... we are trying to SELL our house and that is even more frustrating! I know you are going to find something GREAT
