This time is no different.
The timeline on this property has been quite long.
August – September – Steve and I had the initial idea of looking for property in Evergreen
Late September … We first saw the property online
October 6 – Our first showing
After researching the details of the property, and finding the right realtor …
November 3 – We made our first offer
After counter offer, negotiations, another counter offer, and more negotiations …
December 1 – At last, we finally signed a contract
December 15 – early January … meetings with bankers
Little did we know, acquiring a bank loan would be such a challenge!
4, 5, 6, 7 banks later …
January 22 – A meeting with Jefferson County to confirm our ability to change building usages.
The school -> a Lodge …. The library -> a Cottage
With approval from the county …
January 26 – 28 – We emailed paperwork, and more paperwork to the bank.
January 30 – Tom emailed to say that the initial read on the loan is “quite positive”
We are moving ahead!!!
January 31 – Tomorrow was the last day to get bank approval, without having to file for an extension.
March 2 – Closing day
It’s a relief to know that we are moving forward.
Not knowing has impacted everything.
My mind is filled with questions.
What about Steve’s job?
What about CC? Should I direct Challenge A?
Do we need to be working on getting our house market ready?
Are we moving … or not?
Now, it seems that yes … we will be moving.
I am overjoyed!
