Homeless!

I'll be go to hell, Chez Malaise is under contract.

It came about quickly and we're still a little bit in shock, but it's good news all in all. Phyllis is in New York visiting her kids, so there have been calls and texts and faxes and emails, but it's all signed now.

Up next are inspections of course, but we know what needs attention and those few things will be repaired even before the inspectors arrive. The thing now is that closing happens at the end of October, so we've got to figure out where we're going.

The house we love is still available, but we've run the numbers and it's not looking good. There may be an offer made, but likely not one they're going to take. Then again I don't think either of us were really expecting to sell at this point so one never knows.

The moment we had an offer we were both all over the online listings, and the nice surprise is that there are others we're interested in seeing. We'll be doing just that this Sunday, followed by the getting started on the packing. It seems early in some ways, but in others all I can think is "30 days."

Cross your fingers for us, and if you're in town and run across something you think we should see let me know!

What exciting news. Congratulations.

By the way, we really liked Modern Family. Very funny.

Congratulations! Hope to see you in the hood.

Thank you both!

Kathleen, I'll pass that on to Eric. He said their ratings were good, so hopefully we'll get to see all of the 13 episodes the network ordered.

Congratulation Hope this move is easy and the new home (certainly not malaise) will be all you have dreamed of.

That is fantastic news!

Oh the joy of moving...but I'm sure you will find something soon.

Just great, great, news. Oh and Modern Family was fab. Can't wait for the next episode.

David, congratulations! Click your heels three times and say a prayer for your dream home.
Only 30 days to pack up? It will be gone in a flash. Good luck.
I look forward to a whole new chapter of Chez Malaise — or does this mean you'll be changing the name of the blog?

Exciting and scary I'll bet.. I am a Realtor and you are the second person that I've heard who has sold so quickly in this market and now has to find something quick...
I think the market in lots of areas is stabilizing and on the move so to speak! .... I would GO FOR that house you love, give it a shot! and remember, that offer that "may have been made" could be a tactic by the list agent.... good luck today on your hunt! I hope you find "the one"!!! :)
