Rate Locked, Door Locked, and Now We Wait!

The past couple of months have been so stressful but it seems it's finally coming to an end.  A little upset about the late loan application but hey, as long as the deal is sealed I am OK. 

My PM has been awesome in the past few weeks.  Had my courtesy  "blue tape" walkthrough on Tuesday and my Final walkthrough on Thursday.  I felt bad because I pointed out so many things I wanted fixed, but honestly.. my PM had a better eye for errors because he taped way more items than I did.  Mostly minor things like drywall nick, seams, scrapes & paint but a few poor handling mistakes like scratches in the bathroom vanities & the kitchen cabinets.  I took my mom with me for a second set of eyes and of course she had to nudge me to tape some spots.. I just felt so bad that so many cabinet doors and drawers had to be replaced but hey.. for the amount of money we paid for them.. the installers or whoever damaged them should be more careful.

I also had some pretty deep scratches in my foyer hardwood that will have to be replaced.  PM is on it.  Kudos to him.   

We locked in at 3.25% yesterday and my LO hopes to close on 3/15 or earlier.  I hope so because I just  cant stand to see the house sit not that it's 98% complete. 

Next I'll be compiling my list of things to do in order of priority.  I can't wait to get in and start to decorate. 

I'll upload pics when I'm officially closed.  :)


  1. Don't feel too bad about marking stuff now... because I guarantee you'll regret it later when you have to stare at it every day.

    Congrats on the good rate!

  2. I agree with M. Glad to see a 3.25 % rate again! I hope it stays that way until I lock in.

  3. I third M's motion! I am already writing down things and keeping in mind certain nail areas that are suspicious to me. Better to get them addressed ow then later!
    Congrats also on the rate! Im still waiting to lock but they told me last week 3.5! Soooo hoping for 3.25! Cant beat that nowadays.

  4. You are on the home stretch, TechMama!!

    Great rate!!!! Glad everything is working out for you!!! Tape Tape Tape! It's the way to go!!

  5. That's is an awesome rate. I hope our rate will be that low when it's time for us to lock in June/July time frame.
