Guy... Best of luck and success in the new house. Like you, I go back that far, and maybe even more. It was costly! Unfortunately, no new house here! Nice to see some of the oldtimers still drop in tho'.
I'm scheduled to close escrow next week on August 14th. My realtor and my loan officer have been saying everything is right on schedule, but I'm still somewhat anxious/nervous (probably normal feelings for most 1st time home buyers) that something could happen and I may not get my house.
However, that's probably just me being a little paranoid as I have excellent credit, a long, stable work history, and am putting down over 40%.
