Matt spoke to our mortgage company today, and they told us to expect to close next Friday (2/18) or the Tuesday after that (2/22). I can't believe it! We've been waiting for this for so long, and now it's just around the corner. It just depends how quickly the appraiser can get his sh*t together. I really hope it's next Friday, so we can get started on all the work we have to do next weekend. We've got the apartment until the end of March, but we also have a lot of work to do.
Also, we're both extremely happy that we locked into a mortgage interest rate when we did. We got it at 4.875%, and since then it's gone up every day, becuase of the issues in Egypt. Yay low interest!
