We have finally made the leap to move to a house. Today is the day. I just got a call back from our lawyer and just heard confirmation that the sale of our townhome is complete and therefore, the moneys is available for the purchase of the house. What a relief. Because of the chain of events that are so closely linked to each other, we could have ended up with all our belongings in limbo. We have already packed up everything and are waiting for the movers to come in to take all our things at 2PM today. We do not get the keys to the new house until later this afternoon at 4PM so we could potentially be "living" in the moving truck until posession/completion. I don't know how other investors manage this for a living - buying and selling houses for profit. It definitely is very stressful.
Here is a pic of the front of the house.
