I’m getting excited about my move but I had lots of hurdles to jump through so far…
Issues at the current house;
Inspections have been done and I had to pay for a couple things to be fixed…ugh!! Some electrical issues, and a chimney issue to the tune of @$1700. total. I also had to replace my hot water heater for another $1k.
Issues at the new house;
Inspections there also found some electrical, heater and flooring issues.
The seller has agreed to credit me for the electrical and heater work that needs to be done instead of fixing them herself. The flooring issue is something I will have to tackle over time. It isn’t a life threatening problem so it can wait to be dealt with at a later time.
So I have ordered Pods to move all my belonging, cheap and easy.
And during all of this, I had to have 2 wisdom teeth taken out…it never ends.
Another wrinkle is that my job (offices are located near my current house) has surprised us with 2 days of corporate meetings, 1 week after I move to the new house. So I will have a lot of driving to do in May.
I close on my current house on 5/2 and I close on the new house on 5/11. Luckily, I have family who can take me and my dog in between the 2 closings.
I can’t wait to get settled and start my new life.
