It has been a long time since I’ve bought a house – but I hadn’t forgotten how much paperwork there is. I have just started that part of the process this evening, faxing over the last two years tax returns, a copy of my business card, and the bank’s required form.
But I actually started in February, after I walked my landlady through the house I’ve been renting for 23 years (she wouldn’t sell it to me), and talked through my list of things that need to be done. When she said no to all except the possibility of fixing the driveway – which was downright dangerous, and which could have been reported to the City Building Department – I knew that was a message that it was nearly time to go.
I told Spirit to put my new house in front of me whenever She wanted to. And a couple of weeks ago, a friend sent me a flyer about her condo, hoping I knew someone who would be interested. Turned out I did! : >
So hold good thoughts, please!
