House update

The house passed inspection with flying colors! We are well on our way to moving into this house (still set for March 23)! We are totes excited and very happy with how things are working out. ANNNND it looks like our mortgage will be cheaper than we thought! So... very good! We are infinitely happy with the result! We are even getting from the current owners their paperwork from a contractor who gave them estimates on building a garage - M and I agreed, a garage would be very nice - especially when we have kids, and then we would make it a full garage and have another bedroom and bath suite (maybe even a kitchenette) above it!). I also hope eventually we can put in a pool and a pool house as we aren't near any country clubs. Plus, it would be a nice accessory with birthday parties and social events, etc. I definitely plan on hostessing a lot of things!! Currently we are looking for a lawyer to help with closing, and I really want us to get a lawyer, not a title agency, just because we NEED to get a lawyer, hello, prenup, title changing when we get married, wills, etc...

  4. As a realtor in Virginia most Title Companies require lawyers to do the settlement. Just make sure you ask - it should be a lot less expensive than hiring one, just fyi. Gorgeous house!!
