We got the house! I skyped with our potential landlord (who is currently living in Singapore, which explains so weird time difference mix-ups) on Friday. The call went really well, but they had already arranged several showings for Saturday afternoon and felt it would be impolite to cancel. She said she would email us on Sunday with more information. I woke up three or four times Saturday night to check my email because I’m a dork. At 6:30 am we got the news. One international bank transfer and it is ours. I am beyond relieved.
