An update on trying to purchase this homestead.
Short sale didn't work out. So we are still looking while we wait for the property to go into foreclosure.
We are just shaking our heads on the decisions the bank has made. If they would have worked with us and finished the sale back in October, they wouldn't have a property on their hands with a heating system non functional and broken water pipes. Most likely, they'll spend quite a bit of money on repairs in order to sell it for the price they're asking.
I keep telling myself, 'Patience is a virtue'.
Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified. - 1 Cor 9:24-27
