We Started All Over!! Now Building a Rome!!

So, after pricing out everything for the Venice and decking it out completely...we decided that we wanted the additional space that the Rome offered. And we started the process all over. It was a long haul, but we are finally signed off and ready to go. I will post more on all of our selections soon.

They should be digging in a week or so. Final dates on Thursday.

Flooring and Color Meeting Completed! Now the waiting begins...

We met with the rep for flooring choices and she was a huge help. I took my binder that was full of my paint colors, photos of my current furniture, and dream kitchens and baths we wanted to try to emulate with our choices if possible. She was patient and gave tons of great advice about color and material choices. We have to do a change order now because we made some changes to what we originally thought we would want. And to my surprise we actually saved $1000K+ dollars!! So...now I can have my window in the Office I wanted and not go over budget. :)
Had the meeting with the NVR rep and she was terrific! She was very understanding of the fact that we wanted to be completely comfortable with everything we were signing before moving on. It was a 2 hour meeting, but it was not stressful at all.

SOLD Sign Posted! More paperwork...

Today we had my little guy who is 7 put the SOLD sticker on the lot. And we took a few pictures...of course. :) I have been gathering all the papers needed for the lender so once she calls me this week I should be ready to roll. From what I have been told, I should hear from the lender, the flooring rep, and Guardian this week. I will also have to meet with my SR to do final color selections. Feeling pretty confident about what we have selected so far, so don't see that being too rough. More fun than anything else!

Purchase Agreement Signed Today!

Well, we were finally able to get everything agreed upon and all the purchase agreeement paperwork has been signed! Only took us 3+ hours....but, our SR was very patient, and so we were all happy in the end. Our closing date is tentatively set for 8/2/12. Crazy how quickly this could all get done. Now on to gathering all the documentation the mortgage lender needs....

Negotiation Time

We have put our second offer in to the Sales Manager at Ryan. We had some questions and pricing to get ironed out after our first offer. We think it's more than fair and hope they do too. :) I am hoping we hear something by the end of the week so we know where we will be living at this time next year. The waiting is frustrating, but I can only assume it will all work out for the best in the end. We have a second option with a different builder, but would like to stay in the same neighborhood we are in currently if possible. So we have our fingers crossed we can work this thing out.
