We got an offer on the house this morning. We have submitted a counteroffer. The anticipated closing is September 30. That's a little sooner than expected.
We applied to rent an apartment on October 1. With a closing sooner, I called the agent to see if we can get the apartment that is available on September 1. We're hoping it is still available. We should hear about it some time mid-week.
Of course, I am missing sleep for all the worry about contingency plans and how the heck we'll fit way too much stuff from the very full three bedroom house into a two bedroom apartment.
