It's been a scary week. We were scheduled to close on our new house last Friday. There was a delay on the lender's side, something about the appraiser cutting and pasting from one document to another that said we have a some sort of special appraisal. We don't. So, it was rescheduled until Wednesday the 18th. No biggie. Still within our time frame to move tomorrow.
Tuesday morning, we get an email. The bank we are using closed their home mortgage offices without notice. As of Jan 11 they are not issuing new loans and since our loan is back in underwritting... well... it SHOULD be okay, since they did issue final loan approval on the 10th.
Much stressing on Tuesday. Much stressing on Wednesday. We don't close. Thursday morning, I get a phone call. Go to the bank! Get a cashiers check! Be at the attorney's office at 4PM. We signed! We bought a house. We are finally home owners!
We went to the house last night and put up my son's new wall light that he picked out for his new room. We move our furniture tomorrow. I've got a doctor's appointment this morning and am just hoping that I've got 48 hours left in me before I pop.
