It is hard to be subjective and detached on this deal when I have been basically working around the clock the last 7 days to put this thing together. This will be the first house I have owned in 14 years and the very first house for the wife, this one will actually be our home for 2 years, at which time We will sell?
Funny, true story the deal still died one more time from my post of the granted stay early friday morning and the almost late friday afternoon doc signing. We are all signing on monday morning assuming nothing has changed since the weekend. (My background in sales has taught me that nothing is for sure until everything is closed and finished, nothing!) Or the deal is never actually done until it is recorded in my mind?
If this thing actually closes, I will share the details, if not it has been a very valuable learning experience. Knowing what and how to say to get a lender to grant you a 2 week stay on a foreclosure has to worth something to me in the future?
Actually i will be out of town for 2 weeks so I will post the final story on say August 2nd or so.
