Well, the deed is done [pun intended]. Locked 4.375 fixed [with 1 point cost]. House cost came in right at 100K under appraisal so I was happy with that, seller, not so much - as he saw the appraisal at closing. Closing went very smooth. As mentioned earlier on another thread, our erstwhile broker from Chase is either creatively writing his new resume or picking his nose, so he was not at the closing.
Tomorrow the hardwood guy shows up to restain/seal the floors since they have not been done since 66. Also, if anyone is interested I will have nearly 400 sqft of quality 1966 Linoleum squares [with patina] available. I will make them available to BWOT prior to putting them on eBay.
Also tomorrow is color day. So I have to be prepared to do the swatch and palette thing for a couple of hours. Personally I thought Rust and Seafoam made a certain statement in the Den but apparently it is just not the appropriate statement for the HDTV generation. Maybe if I transfer the Linoleum...
Now the funny part of this is that, in our house I am the color and decorating half. So I don't have to run anything by wifie, just order the kitchen, floor and paint and lights and we be done.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
