Contract FINALLY ratified!

I believe the last time I posted I talked about how they were trying to take back some of their incentives ($5,000 back at closing) and we weren't having that.. so we basically continued the process including the per-construction meeting before the contract had even been signed by the regional manager.  We were about to pack our things and send our money elsewhere because it should not take someone 3 weeks to sign something that was promised...

About two weeks ago we heard that they had FINALLY decided to sign the original contract... so that was frustrating and of course pushed back all the expected dates.  

The new dates are:  

Start digging - April 3rd
Anticipated closing - June 20th

I'm not going to get my hopes up about the closing date.  Our current lease ends on May 31st so we're really hoping things will move along.  We are hoping that our current house will let us go "month to month" come June but again, we're not going to get our hopes up... especially since they didn't allow us to do that last year.

Anyway, we drove by our lot today and saw that they had put out posts marking where they will be digging.  Also, our PM sent us a picture of our lot :-)

Our lot is pretty much behind that fire hydrant.. so the first black tarp thingy you see is marking where our driveway will be.  I love that there is a farm behind our house :-)  I'm hoping they wont knock those trees down.


  1. Congrats on getting the original contract signed!

  2. Awesome! Beautiful lot! Our lot has trees too but they said there is no way they will be able to save them, because most of them are right where our morning room will be :( I hope you get to keep yours!

  3. So glad the contract issue finally worked out in your favor. Can't wait to watch your progress!

  4. Glad it's all straightened out. You have a lovely lot, with a great view. So excited to watch your progress!

  5. I love the view of your lot! I hope they try to keep the trees, I know most communities today are required to keep as many trees as they can.
