Kind of a quiet week on the home-front these past 7 days. :o/ ALTHOUGH…..we did have a septic inspection!! Okay, I’m glad I didn’t have to do that! Tony talked with the guy handling our building permit at the county office, and he said that we should have the building permit in hand by the end of next week….meaning this week since I’m posting this on a Sunday. That is outrageously GREAT news! Our construction loan is taking longer than either of us had hoped. Part of this is because we have more than 10 acres, we had to go outside of Adair’s funding company. I think the new finance company is stringing things along a little until I get my first paycheck at the end of the month, to prove that, “YES,” I am employed. Having an already existing mortgage in CA doesn’t help either, but…………
OK, here’s the “but”………we entered into contract for sale on our Mountain View, CA home!!! I can’t tell you how awesome this is!! Truly this is God’s handiwork to provide us THIS buyer so quickly! Our home went on the market (in the MLS) on Monday the 22nd….we got an offer on Wednesday the 24th…., AS IS, no inspection other than what we provided (we paid for and received a home inspection and pest inspection ahead of time), they want a short close, do NOT want us to fix any of the items on the home inspection list, and……offered us a bit more than our asking price!!!! So, we are in the middle of a 7 day contingency (apparently it is usually standard to have 12 days), and close in 30 days!!!
So, with this, and my first paycheck a few days away….nothing should hold up the funding of our project! In the meantime, we hope to start some excavating work that we have to do around the building site including building a retaining wall this week.
