So far the inspections have gone well and nothing but cosmetic issues have popped up. The home does not have termites, the septic is in good standing and won’t require a draining for 1 to 2 years (RID-X is my friend) and the well is in working order, but needs salt.
The short sale agreement lists Feb 13th as the closing date which is fun and gives my 13 tattoo new meaning. I probably won’t be moving in till March though and my first house payment will be April (well my first payment that isn’t included in my closing costs that is).
This weekend I need to enlist (aka hire) my uncle to draw up a quote for painting the inside. He’s a licensed contractor and owns one of those awesome paint sprayers. He can also patch the hairline cracks in the drywall and fix any bad patch jobs. It’s nice to know a handy man. J
This is starting to feel real.
