Almost to Final Acceptance.....

Well, we will get a new deck .

(Though it will be wood and not tritek (composite) and will be the same size, we are glad it will be completed before closing.)

We just have a few minor things to tie up and we are ready for the Appraisal next week.

Pins and Needles

Well, if anyone is out there..and anyone is curious. We were accepted on our offer for the house.

A new roof comes with before closing.

With the inspection came a new revelation, that the deck may need repaired or replaced depending....... After the roof, the sellers only want to toss in $1,500 towards other repairs.

We had another deck inspection done. It came back needs to be replaced.

The official report will be sent to the sellers over the weekend and we will find out their response to the entire inspection and the fact that the deck needs replaced costing more that the $1,500 "limit."

So we will not hear anything new until Sunday afternoon...

Again, I cross my fingers. We really want this house.

And yesterday our interest went under 5% to 4.8. saving us $10,800 across the 30yr loan. That and the tax incentive of $8,000 and this is the best time for us to buy a house. Hopefully this one, the one we want!
