We closed on the house! After going to the bank to empty our savings account of the proceeds of the sale of our first house, we carried our down payment check into the lawyer's offices. Therese and I were a little scared, but we were very much ready to get out of the two bedroom crapartment. We walked into the lawyer's office at about 9:00 AM.
Before filling out the paperwork, the laywer mentioned that they hadn't recieved funds for the loan yet, but that we should worry because they should be there by the time we finish signing the papers. So off to signing we went...
After finishing up, we waited for a little while for the lawyer to have one of the assistants copy all the papers and check on the status of the funds from the mortgage. So we waited. And we waited some more. Finally the lawyer popped back in and said that the funds for one of the loans made it, but the other load was taking some time. At 11:00 AM, the lawyer suggested that we might want to head out for lunch and check back later. We decided to stick around and wait things out.
Finally, at a little after 11:00 AM, the funds for the mortgage arrived, and we were handed the keys to our (the bank's) new home!
We were pretty giddy as we drove over to the house, and we are ready to start moving things in ASAP.
