Good News: THEY FIXED THE GARAGE!! IT'S NOW SIDE ENTRY!! I wonder if we can fit the van and his car in there? All the plumbing has been covered with a pastic tarp. Waiting for inspections and then hopefully on Thursday, we'll have a slab!!! =)
Toured our street!!
We are the corner. Directly across from us on the other corner is A Naples. Across from us is a Rome. Next the Rome, I have no clue. Next to us on the other side...I have not clue... Either Venice, Milan, or Naples. Two lots down from that is a Milan and across from that Anon is building another Milan!
So that's 3, maybe 4, of my style house on my tiny little street!! I wonder what options everyone else has and what elevations and colors they have. Man, why can't they be blogging too! lol
I am excited so many people love the the house we are also getting. I am curious as to what they all have. But I'm also a little sad there will be so many of us too in like an 10 lot street. I hope we all look different! I now we all will love our homes!!! That's the most important thing. =)
There is another home who is on Crawl SPace that has busy worker bees working and the crawl space looks almost done. No plumbing put in though. So maybe I am ahead of them. I hope so. We were lead to believe we were 2nd in line. I like that feeling. =) I'll be upset if other homes start going up before ours. But what can you do?
Our Loan Officer has NOT gotten back to us (please see last post about issues). I didn't figure she would until tomorrow or Wed. Then we probably won't get the final version until Friday. I hope that it's all fixed tomorrow!! I'm tired of delays. I'm tired of everyone asking us if we know, and we keep telling them, "No. Another week or two." And then we hear, "you said that last time". All the delays have been frustrating. I am really am going to start praying hard for NO MORE DELAYS!!!
As much as I would love to get this stuff all done this week, it just hasn't been the way anything as gone for us. So best to prepare for the worst. I am just about prepared to walk away from my deposit and from the whole mess....just about.... I'm not that crazy yet. lol But if they keep dropping the ball, I'm going to take it as a sign. Hopefully they will all surprise me! And this can get done. My little girl wants an answer before her b-day, and so does her Mommy!
Going to send my Ryan Rep ANOTHER email. I have asked her a question twice now about HOA fees and mortgages and she has NOT gotten back to me yet. And she is always so busy, every time we have been at the model, she doesn't answer the phone. So Email again!!
So here is my Ryan experience so far:
Rep is extremely nice and friendly. A good person. But HORRIBLE at communication. She never gets back to me in a timely manner. I do love her though. She has been very knowledgeable as well.
Cement guys framed the house wrong and took a week to fix it. But at least it's fixed. And now my garage will be right (fingers crossed)
And the people involved with this loan have been extremely slow, and have now dropped the ball with having 5 issues in the one application wrong. They too never get back to you the same day, and you are lucky to hear from them in 24 hours.
As much as I love this home, this is turning more into a nightmare than a fun journey to our dream home.
Thus why I am just about ready to walk away. Again, not there yet...but getting close. All the loan stuff was suppose to be done April 15th. It's now May 16th and counting. If we don't have an answer by May 31, I may just walk away. No amount of money is worth the headache this all has been. I hope everyone else in there is having a better experience than me.
*edited to add*
I was venting when I wrote this. The stress had gotten to me. My Rep and PM really are amazing. And I know that Ryan has finally decided to assign help over at the model to help our Rep. She's been swamped!!! And both ladies have been incredible. I wasn't being very fair when I wrote I some of this... I was stressed b/c of waiting on our home loan final approval and dealing with A LOT in our personal lives (death in the family, state testing for my eldest, my grandfather in ICU, ect.) Everyone has been more than gracious to us. They have done their best to get information to us as quickly as possible. And they have been, truly, awesome!!
