Ok, technically our home is not sold, it's just in contract (so I hope that I'm not jinxing things), but after two days on the market, we got a bid on our house, and after a little more negotiating we are in contract. If all goes according to contract, we close on June 10th and we move out on June 20th.
I know that I should feel happy or relieved, but I would be lying if I said that tears that I shed last night were tears of joy. I'm feeling very melancholy today. It's just hard to let go and move on.
On the bright side, I guess all of this means that we won't have to move in with my parents while we try to sell our house this summer. Now we need to find a place to rent in Salt Lake. Does anyone have any advice? Larry will be working at the University of Utah Hospital and several friends have told us to look for a rental in the Avenues or Sugarhouse, then others tell us those areas are really expensive, but they don't have any other advice. Even though I lived in Provo, Utah; I haven't ever even driven in Salt Lake by myself so I'm feeling pretty clueless. I'd also love to hear any recommendations that you might have about moving companies. What companies have you used and have you been happy with them?
