|Not Closed Yet
||[Mar. 12th, 2010|12:25 am]
So we're not closing on the house tomorrow. Which means we're not moving this weekend.|
I actually drove down to the lender's office this morning to talk to the office manager and find out more about what's going on, and there's a whole tale there, but it will have to wait until tomorrow, because I'm tired.
The upshot is, things are in motion and on track, and since the amount of stress I feel about it all is pretty much directly proportional to the degree of uncertainty, understanding the situation makes it massively more bearable. We should close sometime early next week.
It's still annoying, but, well, eit.
Also, traffic between Broomfield and Greenwood Village is surprisingly light at 8 am.
If there are packing tasks I can help with this weekend, let me know. Also, I can help out next Saturday, but not on Sunday. Just let me know what you need!
Thanks! We'll see how it looks tomorrow.
Good luck on getting this resolved ASAP. I do a luck dance for you!
Dance for me, minion! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!
Next weekend, Sunday is better than Saturday for me.
I'm sorry--- I know this is mad-crazy stressful. If it helps to know, on the day of my closing (which was not quite as hard-fought as yours, but almost), they couldn't tell me how much money to bring or what time to be there, but I was warned that I'd get, like, 30 minutes notice and it might not happen that day at all. So I literally drove around the neighborhood of my bank until they called me with an amount for the cashier's check and then drove to the realtor's office. And the seller's agent (it was a foreclosure, and it was owned by an auction house when I bought it) didn't show for the closing. So my mortgage broker and realtor filled all the roles for both parties to the loan, with my realtor making regular threats to the mortgage company every time we hit a snag (she has a relative who's in executive management at Wells Fargo.) It was the most ridiculous transaction any of us had ever seen. But once it was done, the ridiculous stopped. I got the keys, I got in there, it's been awesome (though with normal headaches of home ownership) ever since. I wish you a long stretch of awesome.
Thanks, Mary. I'm doing much better now that I have a better picture of what's going on. And yes, it'll be a pain until we get there, but once we get there, it'll be awesome.
REALTORS should let folks know that closing on time is rare, it usually takes a day or two more.
