Good job man.

You have many of the same concerns that most do when they build, I was just busting your balls a little/talking you off a cliff.

I do it for a living. Very rarely have anyone that is upset with me and I sell a ton of houses.

Thank you sir. Got a week before I move in tho.

I gotta put up blinds, paint garage floor, change bathroom hardware, put up drapes, change regular lights to motion sensor lights, install window film and etc... tomorrow is gonna be long day. Do you know if I need to call municipality to order waste bins or will they come automatically few days after close?

You are going to need to call them.


Congrats again, glad you stuck with it, you will have some little things pop up here and there during your first year, just like anything else.

Better to do all that before you move in than to wait until after, so you're doing the right thing.

I moved in and told myself I'd do several things at my place and never did. It's easy to get complacent once you are settled in.

Yes ARSEN you need to call them and I think it costs $$ too, like $100 every 3 months.

Did the house thing about 20 yrs ago when I built.

Curious, what is the difference in house payments on a 30 year and a 15 year in your case?

IIRC for what he said he is spending...it would be about 500 per month.

Congrats on the new house Arsen! Sounds like you got a hell of a deal. I'm jealous tbh... Being in the military kind of sucks for this reason. My wife and I want to buy a house badly, but we just can't in good faith. We move around too much. I will sadly probably have to wait to buy or build until I get closer to retirement. Don't want to buy now and have renters tearing up my house for the next 9 years. It sucks too, cause now is the time to buy... Military life has its advantages and disadvantages... When I retire at least my check will more than cover my mortgage though.

Again congrats man!
