(yes, that is a Team America reference)
We are now officially home owners! Everything went well today. Our final inspection was at noon; the seller had cleaned out the house, and everything seemed to be in working order. The seller even left some pictures and things on the walls for us, which is good since we don’t have any. I am not sure we would have chosen any of the pictures he left… but it is better than blank walls until we find things we want to hang up.
After the inspection we headed to the lawyer’s office and ended up getting there about half an hour early. Not too long after we arrived, our agent arrived as well. It is nice that our agent is always early. So, by the time the seller and his agent showed up a bit past one o’clock we had already signed most of the paperwork. We were out of there about fifteen minutes later! I had expected the closing to take an hour or so from some of the comments I had heard, but it was all very fast and simple.
After the closing we headed back to the house to stock up the fridge for the people helping us move, then headed back to the apartment to meet Sean’s Aunt Lisa. With her help we moved some things over that we didn’t really want going in the moving truck (thanks, Lisa!).
After we had unpacked the vehicles, Dena came over and brought Jack with her. Jack was going nuts! He ran all over the house, up and down the stairs, and all around in the back yard. It looks like he definitely approves of our choice.
Tomorrow, the real fun starts. We have lots of volunteers to help us move to the new house. Its exciting to think this is our last night of apartment life! There is so much to do though… which is why we have decided that we definitely need a montage. I can’t wait until we are done with the moving part!
