Closing Eve

Here we are at the eve of our closing and looking back, the 6 months has been a whirlwind for us.  It's hard to believe that by 2pm tomorrow we will be homeowners!  The good news is our house is absolutely everything we ever wanted.  We hired a personal home inspector and he did a great job going through our home.  The inspector found some minor issues, such as some shingles that need to be replaced, a scratch on the range fan, and some caulking that should be done around the exterior of the house.  The inspector noted that our house was very well built and told us that just like a car, a home needs annual service.  I forwarded these issues to our PM and he has no problem in making the changes.

Our walk-thru with our PM was good too.  Matt was informative and talked us through the warranty. I have to say that I'm very pleased with the workmanship of our home.  BUT we had one issue at the end of our pre-settlement walk-thru.  We were told that although all our inspections were completed, there was one piece of paper between the builder, the township, and the developer that was outstanding and this may push our closing back to a week. WHAT??? I was not a happy camper and really did not understand how this oversight could have happen?  However, I can say that my PM worked hard on pushing to keep our original date. Even though our PM was on vacation, he kept me informed through out the day. So, at 5:30 on Friday evening it was confirmed that we will be able to close on Monday.  Yes, can you hear me exhaling?

Now onto NVR…I know that I've complained about their communication, timing, and organization.  But after speaking with my SR and with one of the associates at NVR, I realized that many of their issues have to do with the mortgage crisis.  The rules are constantly changing on them and that means we--the customer have to bear the brunt of trying to meet the new rules.

Below, please find pictures of OUR HOME.  Happy building!
