WHEW. We spoke with the landlord tonight and found out that he was, in fact, able to re-negotiate the terms of his loan on this house. What does that mean? It means the auction that was scheduled for May 7th has been canceled. That's wonderful news!
It doesn't mean that we aren't still searching for a new home - we definitely feel it's time to buy something of our own and move on. I does mean, however, that the search can be a bit more relaxed and we can be very particular about the home we choose.
Good thing. I think we've already put our poor realtor into a bit of a tailspin!
(Not really - she's great. It's just that our list of 'wants' is long and our bank account - while nicely padded - doesn't exactly meet the demands of our ever growing wish list. Or as my Pa used to say, I've got champagne taste on a beer budget. Yep, he was a no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is kinda guy!)
