ETA: As some of you know, I was concerned that the walk-through and settlement dates would conflict with my trip. Our PM worked to get our walk-through moved so that I could be there. As for settlement, we couldn't have the date changed because of the conditions of our loan. I will just have to leave my trip a day early in order to go to settlement.
Hi Everyone! It's been awhile since I have posted! Jay and I took a break from visiting the house so often, but I still have great news to report.
Our FINAL walkthrough is scheduled for Thursday, December 8, 2011 at 10:00 AM! I am so excited!!! Closing will be on Friday, December 16, 2011 at 1:00 PM.
Oh, our PM mentioned that the GE stove that we were suppose to be getting is no longer being manufactured, so we are actually going to get an upgraded model :) I'm excited to see what it looks like!
As our home building process is nearing completion, I have to say that our PM and our SR are two of the greatest representatives for Ryan Homes. They have truly worked with us to ensure that we were happy customers. I've read and heard stories of PMs who didn't put the customer first or who didn't go the extra mile to make their customers happy, and I'm really grateful that our PM kept us in the loop with weekly phone calls (sometimes 2 calls/week). As a piece of advice, if you feel that you aren't being updated with the details of your home construction, say something! IT'S YOUR HOME, and YOU are paying for a service. Ultimately, it's you and your family that has to live in the home, so you want to be sure that you are satisfied with everything.
At any rate, I will post pictures next week after the walkthrough. Also, Jay and I have been thinking about getting an independent inspector to accompany us at the walkthrough...but we are unsure. Suggestions??
Until next time, HAPPY BUILDING :)
