First of all, we just finished the inspection. Minor issues only and since we are out of town, my husband drove down to be there when it happened. So, I wasn't expecting him to have to be there but I guess it was a good idea. Hubby is a construction kind of guy so he understood what they were saying. I would have stood there with drool on my face or something.."electrical huh?" Most important finding..the pool is in great working order and condition! Also, funding of the downpayment was our big holdup..and that was resolved today when I received a check that was expected. That was a relief..so we have that taken care of. That means my pre-approval confirmation letter should now be in my hands in no time! Yahooey! I was surprised at how small our down payment and closing were actually going to be... That's a happy thing. 3% down payment.. Having a great broker and realtor really matters..it's been so easy because of that. Our broker actually hooked us up with the realtor and he did an EXCELLENT job. Appraisal is in the works...we have 3 calling to give us times and dates..first one to appraise it wins..In El Paso, they are done within 10 days..usually sooner...we'll know when tomorrow...looks like the appraisal will be fine as we got the house at a price that seems fair with the current market values our realtor pulled... Just thought I'd share since I know this is stuff I wanted to know before I started this process.
