Well... We wait

Think now would be a good time to refresh where we're at.

We met with a NVR loan officer. Their costs are a bit higher than my credit union. I brought this to their attention and they told me if I get an “offer" from the credit union, they would consider that offer and make sure NVR's offer is competitive. He said in his experience NVR has always made sure they have the best offer on the table.

We also met with a representative at Structured Cable of Virginia. I was a little disappointed that only 4 wired outlets are included. Can be any combination of cable or telephone outlets.  Additional outlets are $150 each.  We added two extra outlets and also added a security system for $499 upfront and $38.50 / month with a 60 month contract.  Glad we got out of there under $1,000. Miscellaneous items can really add up.

We had our 14 day appointment where we finalized structural changes. We initially chose Elevation C with a front porch. We took off the front porch as we plan to add a back deck a few months after closing. No other structural changes. We did however upgrade our bathroom vanities and add ceiling fan wiring. Overall, we added a net $1,200. Not bad I guess.

We also picked our exterior colors, granite counter top color and laundry room laminate counter top color.

Our flooring appointment is scheduled for June 11th. Other than that we're just waiting on the loan approval and permits before construction starts. Expecting things to kick-off at the end of June. Guess the next update will be around then.
