At Long Last

Well suckas, after six months of jumping through hoops and keeping meticulous track of all of our income and bills and submitting all of that to total strangers. And then waiting patiently for lazy a corporate fatcats to sign simple paperwork, we have a house.
It has been a long wait and there have been many visits to Lowe's and Home Depot leaving empty handed because we were unsure of when we would get the place. Now we can finally get our plans started.

Here is the place:












It is a 3 bd 2.5 bath place in Green Valley near Pecos and Robindale. Look it up if you want. We are getting all our projects in line to improve the place. We have started painting and we are going to do some carpet and bamboo floors. And the other stuff will come little by little.

So we want to publicly declare: The visits to Las Vegas can begin. We would love to have you come and visit us. We have an extra queen bed and a twin bed, plus a queen size aero-bed so we have the room. Plus Las Vegas is a fun place, there is plenty to do even if you don't like to gamble. Just send us an email to let us know.

If you are in the area too we will be picking up our stuff in Orem on Saturday Jan 9 with a 26 foot truck and bringing it to Henderson the same day. Feel free to come help if you can :)

So After all the ordeals I have a list of blessings and curses to give:

Bless:
-Our wonderful realtor: Megan Nelson of Century 21 Moneyworld-call her if you want to buy in Las Vegas or Henderson she is the best.
-The second mortgage company and mortgage team, Norbert Gyorfi and his staff at Mountain View Mortgage, that jumped through hoops for us to be able to purchase this place. Call him if you want to get a loan in Las Vegas or Henderson.

Curses:
-All banks that own these foreclosed homes. We put in around 20 offers when all was said and done. We had been under contract with another home only to walk away after no progress for two months. Then we got under contract with this house and the bank moved like molasses in winter to get every tiny step done.
-Our old mortgage company Nevada Federal Credit Union that nearly put a death sentence on this home as well. Luckily we were able to salvage the deal with Norbert and his team.

Oh my gosh your house is exactly like my sister's when she lived in Vegas. She made that same offer and by the time they moved she hated Las Vegas because she had so many people coming to visit.
I miss you, Jaala! Kim
