Sheri and I spent nearly two hours tonight signing gobs of paperwork and when we were finished, we were officially homeowners.
We have keys to prove it.
Our first mortgage payment is due April 1st. I’m hoping that it being April’s Fools Day turns out just to be a coincidence and not a sign.
We learned a lot during this process. Our real estate agent was fantastic and we were lucky to have him. If you are in the Hagerstown area and need a real estate agent, shoot me an email. He was great every step of the way. I would recommend him without reservations.
Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about our lender, Quicken Loans. For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to go with Quicken Loans. What a big mistake that turned out to be. In retrospect, we should have just gone to our bank. I wouldn’t recommend going with Quicken Loans unless a person had no other choice in a lender.
