We Are Moving! (During A Pandemic?)
We have been talking about it for a while and thinking about it even longer, and as of May 28, we have done it! We sold our house in Silicon Valley, and after much searching, and a couple offers not working out, we have closed on a new house in Oregon! 🎉
On to the next chapter of our story!
Buying a house in a different state during a global pandemic was an interesting journey to say the least!
Even with the unknowns arising from the pandemic, the whole process went far smoother than I was imagining from the start. It was a longer escrow than usual, but given everything that needed to happen within the constraints of social distancing, shelter in place orders, etc, it ended up being the proper amount of time.
Some Random Stats Regarding What It Took:
- 52 days from start to finish
- 90+ iMessages & text messages
- 200+ emails sent & received
- 400+ pieces of paper created (that we know about)
- 11 DocuSign documents
- 1 physical trip prior to purchase
- 11.5 hours driving a U-Haul
We couldn’t be happier with the home we found and are so excited to get settled in!
