And the mortgage is being covered where? For how many months?

Mortgage is $1200/month and that check was already written for the next month and factored in. That was written out of a checking account that we have which has about 2 grand in it after the mortgage check is cashed.

I think we're going to pay the taxes, and save the credit card option for a real emergency. Hopefully it won't come to that. We also have about $10,000 in stocks if we really needed it.

We also think we will let the buyers do the home inspection and then take care of any repairs in escrow, rather than trying to do it beforehand. The real estate agent is coming over today, we'll make the final decision after we talk to her and see how these things work.
