Inspection and Appraisal

Oh.  My.  God.

Things are moving forward.  Very quickly.

Our potential new house was inspected yesterday.

As well as appraised.

We should have the inspection report back tomorrow if it’s not already sitting in Adam’s inbox.  The appraisal should be done early next week.  We are on pins and needles.  The inspection actually went well.  There are LOTS of little things that need to be fixed.  The toilet leaks.  There have been mice in the attic.  The house needs better insulation.  There are few BIG things like the electric in the basement needs to be cleaned up after it leaked and they stripped the basement of all it’s walls.  There are cords hanging everywhere.  The sliding glass doors to the patio leak and need to be replaced.  Two window sills outside the house have rotted and need to be replaced.  All in all though it seems to be natural wear and tear, nothing too outlandish.

We are having the chimney inspected on Friday and then we’ll send our requests to the owner and start the negotiation of what they’ll fix and what we’ll fix.  I hope it’s not a big fight.  Once we’ve agreed on things there are a couple of other small financial things to negotiate and then we’ll be done!

With any luck, we’ll sign all the initial agreements and then officially close on May 1.  We’ll move somewhere around May 27, which is exactly three years to the date that we moved from NYC in the first place.




Will this really happen?
