Day 63: News, finally.

April 5, 2012

Patience is a virtue. And with this house hunt, I needed it more than ever. Ten months, 90-or-so houses and three offers later, I now have a semi solid projection of when I’ll finally be a homeowner. Yes, semi; it’s still not solid.

It’s been more than three months since I fell in love with the Ottawa Hills home. It’s been more than a month since I thought the renter would be renting elsewhere by this point. It’s been two weeks since I thought I’d hear that the house would be passing inspections at some point in April.

I learned this week, however, that the little nuisance won’t be moving out until Memorial Day weekend. That is nearly two whole months from now! Which means with inspections and closing, which will take weeks, I won’t be moving in until July.

Until then, I’ll patiently continue my stalker-like drive-bys past the house. (Can’t wait until my sprained foot heals; that way I can start doing walk-bys and really soak it all in.) I’m not really sure what the point is, but checking up on it and admiring my soon-to-be neighborhood seems to make homeownership a bit more real.

Good thing time flies these days; I don’t know how much longer I can be patient.
