Well we bid on a house today. Now we wait.

I was just thinking yesterday, buying a short sale is like being an aspiring screenwriter. You spend a shitload of time doing paperwork and when you submit it for approval, which you may never even get, they will most likely tell you to come back with something better. And they might just tell you that you're no good.

We send those queries off and wait. Then, if we're lucky, somebody asks you for your script. Then we wait. And wait. And maybe three months later somebody might tell you very politely to fuck off. It's good training for other tasks that require patience.

I really don't know how I'm going to make it through the next couple of months without going nuts. If there weren't 4 other couples interested in this house I probably wouldn't be so impatient, but we could end up waiting all this time and then find that somebody else got the house.

I'm about to embark on an 8 week vacation, during which I would like to pack and move. That's probably not going to happen, so instead I'll have to keep myself busy by finishing my screenplay.

  1. remember to stay cool; if not this one, one of the next ones.
    It's easier if you have a place you don't hate- but there's not one of the houses I missed out on that I really regret. My house is MY HOUSE and you'll feel the same way when you find 'the one'.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
