The Sale That Was Short

It wasn't until tax season that we came to understand how the $8,000 housing credit worked.

In a nutshell-We spent 2 afternoons looking at homes. Faxed our offer over on a Sunday night, got an approval on Tuesday, got 2 other banks' approvals to go through within a week and a half (yes, that's 3 banks) and got our entire loan pushed through within 1 month. We sign the papers in 1 week.

Did I mention that this was a short sale? And that we didn't start looking until April 3rd, just 27 days shy of the tax credit deadline. I guess the above situation, for a short sale, N.E.V.E.R. happens.

We've been incredibly blessed throughout this entire process.

I can't believe that it all happened so fast. This definitely was a short sale, and way too short of time for me to take it all in.
