So, we were supposed to be moving into a gorgeous 4 bedroom home on Saturday. Well, now it's not happening.

Our real estate agent swore up and down that the house had been inspected, only for her to call us two days ago saying the house was never inspected and it had failed.

Severe water damage in basement and mice.

Ugh!!!

Luckily, the home seller is very compliant and following procedures properly to get us our money back ASAP.

We gave our two week notice to our landlord a few weeks ago so time is running thin. My mother offered to let us stay with her so since everything is packed in the UHAUL, we are putting it in storage and going with her.

Luckily, there was another home we had our eye on so we're looking into that one. My SO is in the area now setting everything up and we're just waiting for the go ahead from him so we can move.

This will be a fun week.

Thank you!

Luckily, the children are excited about living with Grandma for awhile. Lol. It'll be nice to have an extra pair of helping hands while SO is away.

We're just keeping our fingers crossed on this home.

Oh no! Sorry to hear that! I guess you would rather know now about the water and the mice, as opposed to after you closed on the house and started moving in. Sorry you are going to be living "in limbo" for a while. Hope its short lived and that you get another house ASAP! ((HUGS))
