We're done. Finally.

Our New Jersey house is officially sold. Hallelujah.

We were supposed to close on the house a few days after our move, but there were problems with the lender. It took a month to get a new closing date, and over the course of that month we were pretty sure that 1) the deal would never go through and 2) we would have to get back on the market, the horrifying market, and 3) we were setting ourselves up for financial ruin and we would die in the gutter.

I was going to detail for you all that went on, but every time I try I become either nauseated, or sleepy, or both. Also I would have to go into specifics so that you could fully understand the horror, and then you'd get bored and impatient and you'd wander off to search for baby-animal videos. I would like to do that now, come to think of it. Let's all check out Cute Things Falling Asleep.

Aaaand we're back. So the important part of the story is that everything worked out in the end. Our buyers have the house and we have our money. It's less money than we would have had at any other time in financial history, but whatever. We've got fistfuls of equity, and we're going to blow it all on hats. And by "hats" I mean "long-term, low-risk investments." (Also: hats.)

Awesome just to get it done at all in this climate. Good for you.

Yuck--we had to go through something very similar to that, and that's when the housing market was booming.

And now we're trying to sell another house, and the housing market is terrible and it's terrible and I hate selling houses. Unfortunately, with this house we're just hoping we don't loose too much money...

I'm glad it worked out for you.It's such a pain.

How the H@## did you get a house sold in this economy? to whom did you have to sell your soul first? oh, and yes, yes, yes, congratulations on the big move!! Good for you for hightailing it out of Jersey (speaking as one still stuck here, not that there is anything wrong with Jersey...)
