A homeowner

Well, Dear Reader, barring any unforseen problems, I will be a homeowner after 9:00 a.m. Friday, July 29th. The home inspection had some minor problems. The owner will repair the structural items and I will repair the minor items (installation of GFI outlets, replacing a breaker, and fixing the doorbell).

The only glitch in this whole endeavour (so far) was with my former mortgage company. The reason I say former is because of their last minute "the rates have changed so we're going to charge you a 1% origination fee". My response? "See ya!" Called someone I used before, got the same interest rate with no points and no origination. They're moving forward and I just need to provide them some paperwork.

So...if you're in the area around the 29th, let me know. I could use some able-bodied friends to help me. I provide the beer or beverage of choice, you provide the labor. And I won't even charge you an origination fee.


I think I'm washing my hair that day.

You're still getting charged for your mortgage, the only difference is you have a smarter mortgage broker that is probably making more off of you than the stupid one.
