Title: "Sign ze papers, old man!"
Post by: stevent on June 11, 2020, 01:07:03 PM
Closed on our new house yesterday  :banana: :chili:. We've been looking for a rambler off and on for a few years as our house had gotten way to big for Judy and I. Last October we were out drinking coffee riding around and came a cross a new neighborhood going in, one of the floor plans worked for us, nice big lots, 3 car garage and a nice mountain view 1600 sq/ft and under $400k so we hemmed and hawed and figured what the hell.

Long story short the whole process went through like clockwork, despite a 6 week corvid shutdown in residential construction at about the 75% completion point. The builder, financing and everything went scary smooth, my VA disability meant no funding fee's, and if we used the builders financing they paid up to $12.5k of the closing cost and gave us the balance as a credit for interior selections, and a 2.5% interest rate. Just a sweet deal all around.

We closed yesterday, it should fund today and we'll pick up keys probably this evening or tomorrow and start moving in over the weekend. I have our PODS being delivered next week and the movers lined up to unload and set everything up. All in all a pretty good result.

My dad made Ramblers - he worked at American Motors in the 60's.

I had a '64 Rambler American with 164,000 miles on it when the odometer cable broke.  That was a phenomenal number of miles for a car in the 1970s.  They made a very reliable car back then, and some people claim the lack of planned obsolescence led to their demise.  Thing just would not die.  I know the guy I sold it to was still driving it 2 years later.   

So I guess we just turned a new house thread into a motohead discussion.  What'dya expect from STO?

COGRATS on the new property with an extra bay on the 2 car garage for your motorcycles.   :bigok:

That's it. With Seattle and the east side prices skyrocketing it pushes everyone out to our once bucolic hinterlands. The worst part is the roads and infrastructure are not designed for the current traffic volumes. Still a beautiful area though.
