Under Inspection

Tal and I are thankful that our new house passed inspection today--with only a few minor issues. As a foreclosure, our house is being sold "as is," which means we're responsible for all repairs.

At first glance, it's obvious that our house is "rough around the edges" and needs lots of TLC. However, when Tal and I look beyond the many nail holes in the walls, the missing light fixtures, and exposed wires, we see a house with loads of potential and that appears to be in good shape.

Tal and I are on schedule to close on November 23 and move in the day after Thanksgiving.

Both Tal and I were off from work today, so we boxed up nearly everything in our attic, kitchen, and shed. We're about 95% packed--with only the daily necessities left in the cupboards, closets and drawers. It really helped that we purged and organized our closets before we put our house on the market two months ago.
The next item on our agenda is to go shopping for a new fridge for our rental house and a new washer and dryer for our new house. Stay tuned!
