Closing on my house sale is scheduled for May 13th, and there are still eleventy-seven ways things can go south. Starting to get very nervous about it.

Any mojo you can send my way for an uneventful and successful closing is much appreciated.

You're being very realistic. I think people tend to forget it ain't a done deal until everything is signed, sealed and delivered.

Major mojo!!

Bigtime mojo, nik23~ I've been in the waiting seat in the recent past and I know it's rough. I hope all goes smoothly and you can be breathing a big sigh of relief very soon!

Thank you! This is the sale of the marital home. It really REALLY needs to happen on schedule, as I'm teetering on the cliff of foreclosure.

Thanks, everyone! Five days to go, and things are looking good. The title opinion came back without issues, the short sale details are all worked out with the lender, and all but one of the needed repairs is complete.

I signed all the closing paperwork this afternoon, so all that's left for me is to finish that one repair, do a final cleaning on the house, turn over my keys and garage door openers, and take a cashier's check for the short amount to the closing agent on Friday.

By close of business Monday, I'll no longer be a home owner. Yay!
