Good News
kalimiller posted:
Well, with all of the bad news floating around, I thought that I should post my good news.

I found a job - and it actually pays slightly better than my last job. Sweet, right? I start on Monday and am excited to get back into a routine of sorts. DH had him birthday on Tuesday - same day that I was offered the job. Wednesday (yesterday), he ended up getting a promotion at work. 50 cent raise and once he has been at the company for 5 years he will start to get really nice annual bonuses. He is also going to talk to his department manager and see what he needs to do to be promoted further. Things are finally looking up for us.

Still haven't sold the house, but I'm sure that will come in time.

We've had two offers so far, but both have fallen through. We're not worried about being able to sell the house - it's just a matter of when.

Thanks everyone!

Great news, for sure! I wouldn't be worried about selling the house either, with the interest rates starting to rise. People are going to be rushing to buy before they rise any further. It's plain to me that you have a good head on your shoulders and I'll bet you do great things with this opportunity. Good luck with the new job!

That is very true!! It is always a matter of when, the market out here in Utah is really good for buyers.

If you dont mind me asking, how much are you selling it for?
