Walk Through of House

Today I did the walk through inspection of my house.  We went from room to room with blue tape and marked any dings, nicks or spots.  No major problems just little things here and there.  So basically everything is ready for closing except for the FHA renewal which everything hinges on.  The entire complex has to be approved and I guess my builder had to overnight them additional information on Friday.

Once the FHA  case # is posted online it can take 48 to 72 hours for the closing to get done.  The builder is hoping to hear back from FHA by Thursday or Friday.  This means I probably won’t have a move in this Saturday like I was hoping but we will see.  Maybe I will get lucky and things will move right along? (Goodness knows I could use a little luck and especially my poor roommate.  What a month she has had!).  It took them 10 days to give us an initial response so hopefully the correction (they had listed 107 units instead of 108) won’t take that long.  We’ll see!

Nothing we can do but just wait and go crazy (patience has never been my strength)…Sigh

I did some video of my house so that my family and friends could see what it looks like. I think it is very pretty!  I know it will all be worth it but I can tell you this- I am not moving for a LONG time!!!!!

Please everyone say a prayer that FHA will come through and I will be able to close soon.  Thank you!  I’m so excited for my new house.  I think the colors and the choices turned out very nicely.  I’m really proud of how it turned out.

Countertops!

So they finally came!  The countertops were installed yesterday.  So excited!  I think the townhouse looks great.  The tenants are looking at the basement apartment today and I think they will love it.  It’s a small apartment but very classy.  I think they will love it and they’ve been so great to work with that I’m looking forward to the next year!

I can’t wait to move and get in my house.  One step closer with the countertops!  Wahoo!  Tomorrow I am going to my new ward so that should be exciting.  It’s been a hard process since I started in August and I am so ready for it all to be over and done.

Now it is just the final steps, appliance installs, fixtures, carpet etc.  Then there will the loans and FHA to finish.  Can’t wait!
