Things are looking good on the home deal.
I almost got too wrapped up in the mold issue. While I was wheeling and dealing with the bank, the estimate came back from the mold inspectors and the estimate is under $8,000.
Okay, not exactly a tiny bill. But less than half of what I thought is was going to cost according to how bad the home inspector seemed to think the issue was.
The bank is entertaining either reducing the price of the property by $10,000 or paying for the closing costs. All to avoid having the word 'mold' appear anywhere on the contract. I can live with that.
Didn't I tell ya all I was a 'horse trader'?...LOL
The mold can be cleaned up anytime after the closing and before anyone might want to move into the house. The clean-up will be guaranteed for 20 years. Kool!!
What a relief.
It was kind of getting to the point where MH was considering selling the LQ trailer to cover the costs. Ya know the one I haven't even got to use yet?
It it had come to that though...you can bet that LQ trailer would have headed down the road. The property is much, much more important.
Not so secretly though, I'm glad it didn't have to come to that.
Other than a few odds and ends, we will be heading to the closing table March 3rd.
