Just ten days ’til we officially sell our current house, and the buyers have now dropped all contingencies (we asked for a ten day ‘all clear’ as part of the contract). Thus, if they back out for any reason, they’ll forfeit their earnest money. In other words, we can now breathe a sigh of relief, as the earnest money is close to two months of our current mortgage. So even if the sale falls through at this point, we should be able to re-sell it without losing much (if anything) given the pace of the current market in our area. Knock, knock, knock (that sound is just me knocking on wood).
