House Woes

Well....an update. Apparently there were traces of termites in the inspection at the new house. Everyone kept telling me, it's not final till you sign the dotted line. I knew there would be things that would come up. I was prepared for it to be tough. But right now I feel as if everything is working against me. There were issues with the creditor, the inspector found a crack in the foundation, and the termites which freaked out my husband. He was really worried about that, but I don't blame him really. But I didn't want to jump to any conclusions as to the extent of the damage and he was ready to just walk away from the house. So, needless to say, things have been tough.

We did finally talk to the termite guy-and he said it wasn't that bad, we had to expect previous termite damage with an older house anyways and that he would not let the termites keep him from buying the house.

So, as of today, it's still full steam ahead. But of course, w/ the whole thing being a short sale and having to wait to get full approval, it has slowed everything else down and now my lender dude is saying that this Friday may be pushing it to close. Of course is all I have to say.

Well, trust the termite guy when he said it wasn’t that bad – given that it was fixed right at the first sign of it. Being a homeowner, things like these would come up every now and then. I hope termite guy was able to remedy the termite problem permanently. Good day!
