At this stage in the game, we wait.
We’ve received a disclosure agreement that needed to be signed by all parties (buyer, seller, listing agent) which essentially makes our transaction official. Our lawyer is in contact with the seller’s lawyer and they are ironing out any kinks. Our mortgage guy is busy preparing everything we need for the bank, post-approval. The realtor is in contact with the seller to make sure our closing date will work for her. Meanwhile, Beau and I patiently wait for all the chips to fall into place.
I am going to especially miss this apartment. It was my very first place! I’ve gotten used to the noises this house makes. I know my local grocers and dry cleaner. I’ve developed a rapport with our neighbor and his kids. Even my office is within walking distance of this place. And our beautiful yard where we planted tomatoes, held summer barbeques and hosted family and friends will always harbor the happy memories of the first apartment we called home.
