House Hunting

Postby Tex » Tue Jan 29, 2019 10:44 pm

Found a pretty dope crib out on NE 65th and Mason- literally 40 blocks from my soon to be old house. Its new construction town home and the builder did a great job on the design. Anyway- just found out tonight that the mortgage company has approved my loan. I am pretty stoked on on that. And....the appraisal came in 23k OVER what I paid for it. So that is pretty cool. Most important- 2 minutes from Fire on the Mountain, that could be a bad thing I guess. So I move in on 2/7. Thus concluding a 9 month process of prepping my house, selling my house, looking for a new house, getting a loan approved and moving 40 blocks east. Never thought it would take that effing long.

Congrats, Tex! That's awesome. I know how stressful house buying can be. I just bought one myself a few weeks ago. Moved in last weekend. I'll be down in Waldport now. I'll miss being less than 10 minutes from the local break, but a 20-30 minute drive north still isn't that bad.

I hope this new home purchase will put a smile on your face during the tough time you've been going through lately. Congrats again and good luck with the move!

Now that that's settled, will we see a few more surf reports from you, Tex? :wink:
