OK… here goes:
We get back from our trip to Canada to find a note on the house we’re renting in Irvine (while we rent out the home we own in Murrieta) saying that the house is in foreclosure and will go to auction on 9/18. UM HELLO!!! Thanks for letting us know!! So obviously we start FREAKING OUT. This whole situation is complicated by the fact that we will be out of town for the next 2 1/2 weeks starting on Sunday. Oh… but it gets better.
So this week is insane since we have tons to do before we leave. We talk to our mortgage broker who thinks he can swing another mortgage on a small condo or something out here in the OC. So we spend TWO DAYS driving around looking at properties. Found one we like, want to make an offer. BUT WAIT… our credit scores are messed up because of a mistake from a credit card company!!! (thank God we found out now!) This won’t be able to be fixed for about a week or so. So we decide to just hold out and just wait till we come back into town to decide what to do. But wait… there’s MORE!
So today I spend a couple hours at the gym and running errands and get back to find a) a “for sale” sign in our yard and b) a lock box on our door. AGAIN…. THANKS FOR LETTING US KNOW!!! The freaking out stage is over, now it is just SHEER PANIC!!
So I quickly dropped everything I was doing & looked up a few rental houses in the area, desperately called the realtors and was able to look at two tonight. Both we really like so we decide to apply for one. I just hope our little credit mishap won’t stop them from renting it to us. Which of course we wouldn’t be able to move into anyway until the end of the month.
I REALLY HOPE this is the end of the story. It sure felt good getting it out! Thanks for reading and if you know anyone that has a fixer-upper for sale or a rental in the Irvine area… feel free to pass on the info!
