The waiting game…

We got all of our paperwork sent out, and surprisingly it showed up on their desks much earlier than we thought it would. The package was two day shipping, it made it there in less than 24 hours. Normally, I wouldn’t care too much but when you’re dealing with a company that doesn’t seem to»

In the home stretch!

We’re making strides on the “Home Ownership” front.  We’re set on our final sale price, we’re mailing a huge packet containing all information over to our broker, and, per our contract, we’re set to close on Feb 28th, 2014. I’m super excited, I’ve been on a bookmarking rampage for everything we’re going to need for»

Productive as shit…

My sleep schedule has been completely messed up. I’ve been waking up between 7pm and 8pm consecutively for the past week. Being under the weather didn’t really help the situation but there was really nothing I could do about it.  Last night, however, for some reason I completely passed out at about 3am. Surprising to»

Hopefully looking up…

After waiting for useful information for over a week, we finally heard back from our broker.  We’re switching loan types and have the quotes from the contractors ready to go. We’re going to need to borrow about $10,000 on top of the loan. With this, however, we’re going to counter because the owners of the»

Happy New Year!!

It’s that time again… Everyone has gone out of their way to make resolutions for themselves, and those with actual will-power may make it past day #2. I made it a point to not even kid myself and have no resolutions this upcoming year.  Why? It’s simple.  If you truly wanted to make a change»

It’s been….rough…

First and foremost, I fucking hate HostGator and am currently looking for a new place to house my servers.  Upgrading to WordPress 3.7.1 almost completely had the servers shut down because of how often WP was being called on for updates.  Now, this was easily controlled with a wp-config update that marked all auto-updates to»

Hopefully it goes a little smoother…

Unfortunately the broker I was working with on the mortgage was let go from the company.  Last night I went ahead and sent an email over to his manager explaining my unhappiness with his company, thus-far, and requested to be provided with the information that I’ve been asking for, for quite some time now.  He»

And now we’re back to the drawing board…

We, unfortunately, couldn’t get the financing that we needed to move forward on the house so we’re basically back to square one.  We’re out of the contract, we need to get our $1,000 (good grace payment) back from the realtor.  I’m disappointed because I really had my heart set on this house. I had it»

Possibly looking up…

So I got a phone call from the realtor today.  She noted that she had absolutely no idea that 21st Mortgage had blacklisted ELS properties.  She was furious, she’d been recommending this company to just about everyone for the past few years.  She threw out their business cards, and gave a few other companies a»

Un-fucking-believable!

So we’ve been at the mercy of the underwriters for the past week.  We’ve been too patiently waiting to find out what we need to get into this house.  We finally get a phone call from the broker today, he noted that he’s heard from the underwriter and that he’s got both good news and»
