We got a home inspection done today! One of my co-workers just got his certification and I got him to do while I "watched over his shoulders".
As my buying agent told me, I learned a lot about the house this way. We found a few issues, but we'll have to deal with them ourselves as the house is being sold "as is".
Now to wait for the appraisal, water, and sewer test to be done.

Wise advice! There is a good reason to use real estate agents! (I'm bias, having been in real estate almost 18 years but I gained great respect for the purpose of using agents- )

Thank you for keeping us posted!

Now if only I could sell my house! I would sell for considerably less than the latest appraisal, even after installing all new floors and updating the heating system. Oh, well, we wish you the best in your new home.

Great news for the buyer, (not so great for the seller ;) ) really, a blessing from the Lord, perhaps affirmation of this 'gift'- already you have an 'additional' $7,000 in equity to whatever you put down, off to a good start!

Glory to God!

Our small group from Church got together last night to help us get a few things done to "pass inspection" for the financing company.
We had 7 wooden windows and a small access door to scrape and repaint, and a hand rail to install to the cellar. Instead of repainting the lattice work, I chose to replace it with vinyl lattice which also got done.
Now on to more paperwork!
