Moving Right Along...

After four months it seems we are getting close to closing on our house. Last Saturday we received documents from the title company saying our house was going to close on or before May 6. Since nothing has happened on time in this endeavor, I figured we would be closing May 6 or later...

Yesterday our agent called and said we could be signing by the end of this week. Whoa! I was surprised by that. I thought that was the end of the process and we were then home owners. Then I found out it takes a few more days after signing to finalize everything, but those last steps shouldn't take more than a week.

UPDATE: After leaving the post for a while to do some silly things like feeding the baby, feeding my self and changing the laundry, I received a phone call and we are going to be signing tomorrow. The time is still TBD but it will happen tomorrow. How cool is that! I can't believe I am so close to home ownership.

Let's just say my lack of packing is now starting to freak me out!!!! EEK!!!

I just paused my packing efforts to take a break and read your post about packing. Good luck with that! If you change your phone number make sure you let me know!

Congrats! I worked at a title company for a few years. After you sign all the papers it usually does take a couple days to get all of the money in the right place and then record the deeds, etc. at the county courthouse. But it shouldn't take more than a day or 2 unless there is a major hangup (at least in my experience).
