So this is it … in a little over an hour, my wife and I are set to start signing papers like the dickens that will ultimately result in the purchasing of our first house! I’m a little nervous, simply because there were some snarfus on Friday that meant we didn’t get to see the final settlement statement (i.e. how much $$$ we need to bring to the table!) before actually arriving at said table, so I’m really hoping that everyone remembered to cross the T’s and dot the lowercase j’s so that the numbers all work out to exactly what we’re expecting.
Mind you, we won’t actually walk away with our keys today … apparently that doesn’t really happen much at closing anymore because they want to make sure that your check clears before handing them over … but still, it’s a pretty huge step considering that it was barely 45 days ago that we even decided to officially start looking for houses in the first place!
Now without further ado … to the Scottmobile!
