More Hoop Jumping

Lately, this is what it feels like regarding the Short Sale house.  It seems that daily, I will get several Emails with requests from the underwriter, the Realtor, and the companies that are doing or have done inspections for us.  I think that this is a good thing, an indication that things are moving along and hopefully the end is in sight. 

Yesterday, the underwriter needed my husband's W-2 form for 2007.  I did have it, but had to dig through several boxes to locate it.  You see, I have been secretly packing up all my stuff in anticipation of a move very soon.  The underwriter already has our W-2 from the last 3 years, banking and saving statements, retirement accounts, ... if it has to do with documenting money, they have it or will definitely ask for it. 

Yesterday, I had to go out to the Short Sale property and collect a water sample from the well.  It seems that the underwriter needs verification that the bacterial level in the well water is low.  So, I am out side of the Short Sale house, disconnecting the hose, wiping off the spigot with bleach water ( per the instructions of the water testing company) and then letting the water run for 10 minutes BEFORE I collect the sample.  Water is running down the driveway, I am standing there not making a move (because I did not want to draw attention to myself, although the water running down the driveway definitely is an attention getter!) watching my minutes SLOWLY tick by.  

Finally, 10 minutes passed, I collected the water sample and then drove 30 miles to a state certified water testing facility.  When I googled the directions, initially the directions took me to a Water Treatment Plant .....After calling the facility I did get correct directions and finally found the correct facility to drop off the water sample. Craziness, pure craziness.....But at this point, whatever the hoops are, we are ready to jump through them.  The end is definitely in sight!!

This has to be the longest "short" sale in history! Oh well, think of all the exercise you're getting with all of your hoops! We have to get our water tested out in PEI every year as we have a well too. I wonder if the procedure is the same as yours. Hang in there!

Thanks Jane! This has certainly been an adventure to say the least ~

One day this house will be yours and you can laugh about all this ridiculousness.

But today is not that day.

I have to say, after reading your (and others) experiences, I don't think the money saved in getting a short sale is worth the time and effort involved. What a hassle this has been for you! I hope it all ends soon and you can move into your new house.

Good luck with all that! All those hoops have got to be annoying, but hopefully it's all worth it in the end :)

What is a Short Sale? said...

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to learn, but I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you might repair in the event you werent too busy searching for attention.
