Closed on this last Thursday , new home, pic 1, two miles up the hill
Sold and closed our old home today, pic 2
Scary owning three homes and mortgages for a week or so.
Started this process July 15 with an offer ,not much Moomba time since then.:cry:
Very happy you got it all done. Woo hoo! I know what a pain in the arse it all is these days. I went through 6 months of torture last year after we had our house sold. Tried buying a short sale and ran into issue after issue after issue. Had to live in a temporary house for 6 months (foreclosure I rented from a buddy of mine). Not easy moving the family around a couple of times and dealing with all of your stuff too. The whole affair just disrupts your life. Just fantastic being done and in the new house. So happy for you and the family!
well i know where im staying at on the weekends lol
New place looks awesome! Congrats!
Yeah! I guess so! Now just get the move done and you will be ready for next season!

Thanks guys, few more boxes to either unpack or toss.
It could not have worked any better, bought the new house the day it went on the market, and ours sold in three business days from listing. Just a lot of stuff to move in such a quick period, expected to be at the lake house on those weekends, but when an opportunity exists, you jump.
PAt I could not imagine being homeless for 6 months with a full family, that may have put me over the edge.
Eric, yes it is boatable, it's our summer home about 60 miles away.
20 miles long, 1 to 1.5 miles wide and 125 ft deep, and the shoreline is covered with residences.
We also had 3 mortgages for awhile and that sucked. Lived in house 1 while renovating house 2 and kids finished up the school year, which all worked nice except for the stress.
Fortunately, I was too dumb to know the stress of having 6 mortgages with 4 of them rented, one for sale, and one empty. While, I was renting in San Diego.
In the end, everything worked out and I didn't really have a lot of stress.
all the talk of multiple mortgages scares me!.. I'm renting in Baton rouge! Plan is to keep renting so I can build lakehouse! if the boathouse EVER finishes!!
Congrats man! That looks like a beautiful place to be! I'm getting scared of the one mortgage I am about to have. I can't even imagine three!
