Third time's a charm?

We put in a bid this morning on a new place. It was accepted, and we are now under contract. (Ish.) There was one point of clarification on the part of the seller, so we're resending our approval of the contract tomorrow morning. On Tuesday is the inspection, and then we wait.

And wait.

This house is a short sale, so Annie said to plan on at least 6-8 weeks (at the bare minimum) before hearing so much as a whisper from the seller's bank about it. We did put in a clause that we are allowed to back out if a month passes without word from the bank and we'd like to move on.

But hopefully that won't happen, and we can close happily on this one: a three-bedroom with gorgeous hardwood floors, a beautiful staircase, sunny kitchen, and monstrously long backyard. Superficially, it appears to be in fantastic condition. We would only want to paint before moving in, and buy a washer and dryer. Nothing else really needs to be done.
