Letting the cat out of the bag

So its time to fess up and tell y'all WHY I've been pretty much MIA lately... Pie and I are trying to sell our house. Yup, we've finally found "the place" and are hoping to be moving out to an acreage in June.
This short time frame means I've been working my behind off getting our house somewhat ship shape. Its amazing how much stuff a person amasses in 8 1/2 years. Doesn't help that hubby loves to shop and hates to get rid of anything! lol
So things have been a bit stressful and free time is severely limited.
Right now I'm praying that the bank okay's refinancing things to cover both properties for a short time so we can move and then sell the city house. With our schedules, and having two large protective pooches, it makes it difficult to show the house to potential buyers while we live here.
Should know by this time next week whether that plan will pan out or not. I sure hope so, I'd hate to lose this property its pretty much "perfect" for us! House is move in ready, there is a shop that needs a bit of work, a barn, corrals, waterers, an outdoor arena and pasture for the ponies.
Fingers are tightly crossed and prayers being said... hopefully I'll have good news to share with you guys soon!!

  14. Congratulations!! We are in real estate, so if you have questions, just send me an e-mail (jrzdrav@comcast.net). I don't know how different it is in Canada than the US, but here it is really tough for a buyer to get a loan. They are making buyers jump thru all kinds of hoops to get approved. As far as covering 2 properties at once, ask your bank about a "bridge loan" -- that is what folks do here when they are in your situation. I really hope you get the place you have your eye on.
