Well, that was fast

Things are moving so quickly with our move to Maine.

On Sunday, the church voted unanimously to have Stephen come as pastor. This was very exciting.

We put in an offer on the house we’ve been looking at. At this point, the offer has been accepted (with no counter!), we have a contract on our house here, and the appraisal has already been ordered on the new house.

We’re waiting to hear back from our buyer with when the contractor will be out here. We chose to work with Home Vestors (the “we buy ugly houses” people) because you sell your house as-is, and you set the closing date. Our house is an older mobile home, and we don’t have the time or skill to do the updates needed to sell the house with a traditional realtor. There are 8 of us in 1152 square feet….there’s no way we could replace all the flooring in the house while we live here! And that’s not the only thing they’d like done (we met with a realtor too, just to see our options). It’s just not possible with our family, the fact that we run our own business, AND are on a tight timeline.

So we are under contract for this house here as well as our new house in Maine. I’m so incredibly excited. The new house is more than twice as big as this house, so we’re all looking forward to having more room.
