inching towards the finish line
Still no closing. Last Friday there were still four things missing. About five thousand phone calls between us and the seller, real estate agent, our lawyer and the mortgage broker managed to get one document into the right hands and one requirement waived. An direct threat to repair the leaking boiler ourselves (accompanied by an actual visit to the house this weekend) prompted a call to the repair man, who should be taking care of that piece today. So now we're waiting for verification from the seller's bank that they paid off their mortgage years ago. And then we'll get a call to schedule the closing.....and my phone is ringing!!......that was George (owner) saying the repair was made. So we're officially down to one item remaining....feel the excitement!
