Our sales guy called today. He confirmed what I'd mentioned in my previous post about the road alongside our development being closed. He said he would call us again in a week or two to schedule our first meeting with the project manager. I asked about the time frame for construction and closing and he said that he expects we will be breaking ground in September. Closing is still expected to be in mid-November. I'm dubious about that construction schedule, which would be anywhere from 60 to 90 days. Does that sound right? Meanwhile, I'm still worried about a potential interest rate hike that could turn the whole project into a disaster.
My wife and I have been discussing Thanksgiving. Our closing date is projected to be just before, but there is a real possibility it could be delayed until after. Either way, we will probably be knee-deep in boxes and partially-dismantled furniture. It's certainly going to be a messy affair this year, but it would be wonderful to have Thanksgiving in our new home.
