Hello everyone! Just wanted to give an update on the house front. Earlier I had posted about the house inspection. Since the house inspection I had been waiting to hear back from the seller on some things I had asked for due to what was found in the inspection report. Before I called the agent to let them know of my thoughts, I got this email that the seller wanted to move the settlement date up and needed to know what my decision was. So, I called a trusted advisor and let him know of the situation and I came up with a game plan for my call to the agent. I was nervous, because negotiating is an area of weakness for me. So I called and the agent and I discussed some options and the seller and I came to a new agreement with a different settlement date! Overall, I think this works out better for me and things won't be rushed while I'm getting the house ready and leaving my current rental apartment.
So, settlement date is now April 27th! which is exactly 7 weeks from today! Yikes! It's going to be here before you know it! So if you're reading this entry wondering what you can do to help, see the following sections below and let me know what area you can help with.
