Initial here and here and here

Last night we got our contracts emailed to us to sign for the house we are trying to buy.  This is a first for us.  Kind of exciting and kind of scary.  First of all we have never seen the house, mom went and looked at it for us. It's not a pretty house but it has potential.  Potential is good and the price is right.  So last night we started initialing and signing on every page then sent it back to our real estate agent.  The process has begun.  Today I made a phone call to the bank and got everything in order for that.  So far, so good.  Of course, there are a lot of things that could go off course between now and closing.  The seller has agreed to the low price, but her mortgage person has to agree to it.  We think he will, but you never know.  The inspections have to pass and all sorts of other things.  Those of you who have bought a house before know what I am talking about.  Since this is a short sale the process can take longer, hopefully it won't.  In the meantime, I am packing and preparing!
