No closing today.
I got a call from Tony the Mortgage Fellow yesterday afternoon and he let me know that we wouldn't be closing today. That is terrible, for reasons previously explained and obvious.
He did inform me that because of all of the hassle, I will be saving approximately $1,500 off of the closing costs. I told him that I would gladly pay him an extra $5,000 to close today. He sounded displeased and told me, "I hoped that would soften the blow a bit".
Yes. $1,500 makes up for all of the craziness that is going to go on when I get back from my terribly timed vacation.
The new date is the first day I get back, the 27th. It going to be a great weekend thereafter...
