Well, we did it. We handed over lots of dough and in turn received a home.
1. You are at the mercy of these people when it comes to closing. Just because they tell you the day before this is going to happen here and at this time, doesn't mean it will. They can call you 25 minutes before and tell you they have pushed back the time, and this apparently happens all the time.
2. Do hand exercises prior to starting the signing. You can get some real good hand cramps if you don't while going through the inches of paper that you must sign.
3. Get good help - realtor and finance side. Because most likely you won't know what you are reading, and they can tell you. Thanks to George and June!
4. It is a great feeling. Knowing that all the hard work has finally paid off. And another reason to make sure you are careful with your credit because it would suck to live in an apartment forever..I can't wait to move, houses are cool.
We already met some of the neighbors. They came over an introduced themselves. Looks like there are lots of friendly people there with many kids who actually PLAY outside!
Coming to a home near me and some of you....a house warming party/block party.
Home is a good place to be.
