We’re almost there!!

It’s been a constant up and down, and I know I’ve bitched about it quite a bit but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  We’re closing on Wednesday 3/12 at 4pm.  I’m excited, but not to the point where I’m jumping up and down.  I’m so over this entire process that I just want my keys and the current owners to fuck off and then I can just work on making it OUR home. We’re doing the final walk through today (3/11), it’s odd to do it the day before the closing, but we’re obligated to get another pest inspection (per banks request) and since we need to be there for that we’re just going to get that over with today.  They supposedly turned the electric back on, but we’re still not sure as to whether…

It’s been…rough…

As previously noted, Sean and I are in Delaware for a “workation”.  We haven’t really gotten to enjoy very much being as our computers really don’t leave our sides unless we’re sleeping, even then they’re still on and downloading countless emails for the 6-8 hours (if we’re lucky) while we’re asleep.  We took some time to drive around down in the Rehoboth area (by his Mom) to do some house hunting.  Of course everyone that sparked my interest was in the $250k to $350k range.  The difference between looking down here at houses in that price range, and the quality of the house in New York would be $500k at least.  I’m looking at houses that in NY would typically be listed in the $850k range just based on the amount of property, the quality of the house, and the…

Relocating to DelaWHERE?

The past week was pretty hectic. Sean’s aunt was here with her kids and she spent the bulk of the week looking at different properties because she’s hoping to move down here soon. Unfortunately her current mortgage company has decided that it’s time to foreclose on her home and she’s hoping to get out of there with a new home down here so that she doesn’t wind up on the street with two disabled children. She can’t afford her mortgage, no one can afford them anymore. She’s also been looking into Mortgages down here in hopes to find something with a lot less interest that will work with her current income. Right now it’s down to the choice of “Do I feed my children or do I keep the roof over their heads?” It’s really a lose-lose situation when you…
