    Default I'm feeling so excited and relieved right now

    Hi everyone, just an update on our having to move out of our rental house. As I posted before, and some of you already know, we got notice in September from our landlord that he wanted the house back, as his daughter and her family is moving into the house at the end of December. We have been frantically trying to find another house or townhouse to rent that would also accept 2 Bulldogs, 1 cat, and 1 bird. I didn't even mention the cat or the bird, just the dogs, but nobody wants to rent to people with pets. I've been freaking out as it will never be an option for us to live somewhere where we can't have Dozer and Blossom, you might as well just rip my heart out. I started to lose hope that we would ever find a new place, plus the rents are so crazy high, everything in the $1900 to $2000 and up range. We figured we should just give up on renting, and just buy our babies a house of our own. We applied at our bank, and we just found out today that we were accepted for a mortgage. It has been a very stressful couple of months, worrying about whether we could find a home in the time frame. Now we can go and buy a home, but I only have 2 months left to find one, pack, and move. Hopefully we can get a 1 to 2 month closing date, but I'm definetely more optimistic, and excited to know what ever home we choose, we will be able to take our babies. Yeah.

    I'm very excited for you, Monica! Do you have a good realtor to help you find your new home? Hopefully there is more of a supply than a demand for homes in your area this time of year so you'll be able to find the perfect house for you and the fur-kids in no time.

    That is great. Some realtors in our area will help you out with a couple months free in a rental till you can close on your new house. Hopefully you can close on one sooner so it doesn't get to a sticky situation.

    Congrats! It's a very stressful process no doubt but worth it in the end. I put the offer on my house on April 8 and closed on June 14 just to give you some sort of time frame. Good luck!

    Wow that is great. I'm not sure of the Canada market but here you can def close in 2 mos. Just make sure whatever realtor you use knows your time restrictions.

    Good luck hon. Owing a home is a lot of stress but so worth every single penny because it's yours and no one can tell you that you can't have your babies. Going to say a prayer that you can find something quick that is in your budget and to your liking ASAP. Just make sure to line up all the paperwork and have everything covered that will go a long way in being able to close quickly.
    Always in my heart and never far from my thoughts. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet little Monkey. R.I.P. Raven.
