Looking Good!

We had our inspection this morning and the inspector told us several times "This is a great first house for the two of you." We found some cosmetic things that could (and will) certainly be fixed at some point down the road but nothing that is a deal breaker. Just to be on the safe side we had him collect a water sample which he told us we should get the results for by the end of the week. Since it is a well system we want to make sure that the water is safe for drinking (though we will most likely invest in a water purification system anyway since potable doesn't mean that it tastes good). We'll get the inspection report sometime tomorrow but it looks like it is a go on that front!

Then we went and signed our loan application, which was a lot of paperwork but went very smoothly as well. And now it's simply a case of waiting for the appraisal, the loan paperwork and packing boxes! It looks like we're going to be moving! :)

Hooray! For the first hurdle. It is always good to make it clear through the inspection without hearing the inspector suck in his breath and say "Wow"!

Now if those other ducks would just get in line!

How exciting! My grandparents have a well system that was potable but over the years has become unsafe for drinking. They invested in a couple large bottle water dispensers for their drinking water. Hope the rest of the process goes smoothly for you!
