Settlement was Friday and the moving truck already loaded, began moving shortly thereafter. As my mortgage guy stated at closing: "It's almost anti climatic!" And indeed it was. Paper pushed in front of me from the left by the mortgage guy and papers pushed at me from the right by the title lady. Then, about 45 minutes later, the previous owner handed me the keys, and it was off I went, indebted up to my you-know-what! A home owner again! I shall truly see if as everyone has said, "It's better than giving it to the landlord!"
Things are however coming along well. The boxes are slowly getting unpacked and home sweet home is becoming just that. I must say so far the condo has been much quieter than the apartment. No kids running around so far. Only a small dog(s) or cat(s) that I heard rolling around on the floor yesterday morning, and the sounds of someone above me walking this morning. Also an occasional flush!
Time will tell!
