The house is now officially off the market. Hopefully the bids will go to the bank by Monday, and we will know exactly how many bids we are competing with. Hopefully only that one low ball offer.
The listing agent informed us that we can expect a very lengthy process, and he doubted we would close by January 15th. But our Realtor thinks we will at least know if we have it by November, we will see.
Another dark cloud is also to be address later on.
Many houses in the US that were built between 2004-2007 has faulty drywalls from China (kallmurar). Not a good thing at all! There are a few houses that are confirmed in the subdivision we are looking at, and it looks like the next door neighbour to the house we have an offer on have this Chinese drywall. Since they were built by the same builder and at the same time, it is most likely so that "our" house has it too.
This will be determined later on during the home inspection, but we will also hire a Chinese drywall expert, since it can be difficult for a regular home inspector to find out, it is a bit of a forensic process. So if this is the case we will of course not but this house, and just look for something else.
I just wish we could get a confirmation if we have the house NOW, do the inspection NOW, and know for sure if this is our house to be or not, but patient, patients...
Now back to a ton of work projects that are piling up!
