Well, it’s come down to it now. We need $4000 by Friday or we can’t buy the house. MSHDA requires that there is a law in place, in the township, that says we can’t split up and sell our parcel of land. Not only is the person to write that letter on vacation, but that law doesn’t exist. So after 2 months of paperwork and running around, MSHDA is going to deny us their help. That means we have to come up with all the closing costs and a down payment. Thankfully we have some money saved up, but we still need another $4000.
We’re pulling as many strings as we can and trying to pull it off. Instead of moving in with $3300 in cushion, we’re moving in as broke as can be with nothing to our names. Fortunately we’ll have the summer to recover, but it’s not going to be easy.
I’ll let you know if it works out.
