We closed on the house today!:) But what should have been an enjoyable moment for us turned into a stomach turning, white knuckle affair. The loan processor ruined what should have been a very ggod day for us. It all worked out in the end, thank God. Now the tedious process of moving begins this weekend! I'm looking forward to it though.:D I'll probably see you guys at Houston FFW, Al and I are planning on taking Jeremy's car up there since he's overseas.....or I'll see some of you when Nina moves down if I can make it to help unload. Take care guys, we'll keep in touch! Look forward to the day I'm back in a Cobra:thumbsup:

After having bought 2 houses and gone throug a couple of refinancings (all in the last 5 or 6 years - I guess I am a masochist) I have learned one very important thing.

Unless you have a good realator that is babysitting the closing process it will be a huge pain in the rear.

Both of our closings went with only minor issues thanks to our realator. HOWEVER - the two refinancings (done to take advantage of the constantly dropping rates) were nightmares. Contracts were drawn up wrong, paperwork wasn't ready when it was supposed to be, we show up to sign and the title co wasn't even aware we were coming, etc.

Congratualtions on the house and welcome to the joys (?) of home ownership. Now go mow that yard :p.

Congrats David and Tracy, you'll have a lot of fun turning that new house into a home :)

Thanks!! Actually moved some stuff into today, what a feeling. Unfortunately we used a realtor that's a friend of ours, don't ever make that mistake. As for mowing, luckily Tracy likes to do that! What a woman:D All I have to do is spring for a self propelled mower so she doesn't have to push to much. But I'd feel guilty, so I'll do the mowing. We'll let you know when we're ready for a
"Cobra" party;)
