We called today to schedule our closing. Apparently we can do our closing and final walk-through on the same day. We just won't be getting our keys until the next day. Don't ask me why we don't get our keys on the same day as closing. I have no idea! Our final walk-through and closing date are on Monday, August 6th. So far we have the same closing day as Charissa, Bonds-Zachary, and Thomas! Anyone else sharing this special date with us?
We sent in all of our final documents to NVR today. I can't believe we are this far in the process already! We started everything back in March and broke ground in May and now we are just 4 weeks away from moving into our dream home!! The time is flying by now! We have so much left to do! We still have a lot to pack and we are painting and doing some remodeling of our condo. We hired a property management company a couple of months ago. They will be listing our condo for rent once we get everything finished up around here and moved out. We are painting the entire place, changing out a ton of light fixtures, replacing all of the carpet, and changing the floor in the kitchen. Our condo was built 40 years ago but we have been slowly doing some remodeling over the past few years. Our air conditioner broke recently too so now we get to deal with that! I will be so happy to be done with this place! We will still own it of course but the property management will take over once we move out. We won't have to worry about anything and we won't even meet the tenants! The thought of being responsible for all of that stuff freaks me out! The property management is pretty affordable too. It's totally worth it! So if any of you are planning on renting out your current homes after you move into your beautiful new home, shop around for a property management company. They do EVERYTHING including finding tenants, doing the rental contract, collecting rent and sending it to us, maintenance, evictions, and they even send a monthly statement for tax purposes. The best part? They think they can get more than twice as much in rent as what our current mortgage payment is! Squee!!
Here are just a few pictures from today! My husband was in the area so he stopped by. The drywallers hadn't started yet so he went in to see if Guardian corrected their mistakes and they did!
|About a 1/4 of the way done and they were still out there working!|
|I asked for a close-up and this is what my husband takes? Seriously....|
