My husband and I are currently living in Michigan, and are getting ready to relocate to Ft Bliss (El Paso). We are so excited to be moving closer to our roots! My husband has been in the military for 13 years, we have been in MI for 4, and we are READY to move! It's a huge challenge trying to purchase a home long-distance like this, but it's necessary. We have 4 beautiful children, one of them with special needs, so it is very important we get settled as soon as we can after we arrive.
Hopefully all will go well, it's been so stressful finding a home, 2 offers have already fallen through, and we are working on a short sale now. Our offer was sent to underwriting (whatever that means) last week, so we hope by a miracle to close by May 1st! Wish us luck!
