Celebrate!!


Tonight we celebrate! The purchase of the home in Newberg Oregon is complete. The county has recorded the purchase.  This has been a long....3 month process. The seller was difficult to work with, and we almost gave up. Someone convinced her to do the needed repairs to the home. She did not want to spend a dollar on the house to do the repairs. We would not purchase it otherwise. Then, at the last minute (last Thursday)....our lender became very difficult to please. We had to prove to them that our retirement pensions will last 3 years into the future...what I said, you have to be kidding...how do I do that? The title company person told me later that the lender are doing that to everyone. The lenders sometimes refuse to loan at the last moment. A big Thank You to our buyers agent Alex Clark!
