Ahhh, Relief!

Harry and I are having a nice relaxing evening tonight, and having a celebratory glass of wine because….our house inspection is IMG_3648OVER! And there were no problems!  Of course, there were some minor recommendations, but that’s pretty standard I think. The most important thing – NOTHING major!!

Do I look lighter? I feel it!

The next step is the septic inspection, which is Thursday. We are feeling much more relaxed about that one because Harry has always maintained the septic system. In fact, our last time pumping the tank was only a little over two years ago. So we are not really concerned about that one.

We are also waiting to hear about the appointment for the appraisal. But we are not worried about that one either. We believe this house is easily worth more than the amount the buyers are trying to finance.

We have more stuff heading out this week – the loveseat and some other items hopefully will be going on Wednesday. And our snow blower leaves on Saturday. This house is emptying out fast!


  1. I can see the relief on your face too! Cheers to you both and here's hoping that the rest of the inspections and appointments go well also. We're thinking of you.

  2. Congrats!!!! we know the feeling having been in that same situation about 20 months ago. Won't be long and you'll be on the road.

  3. Inspection is always a worry in any house. You think you hav edone enough and if you get a picky inspector your in trouble!

  4. Woohoo!! One more step to the finish line :)

  5. the light at the end of your tunnel is getting much brighter!!!

  6. I remember spending a month sitting on pins and needles waiting for the closing date on the sale of our house. I know what you are feeling. Hang in there. We had an inspector who was picky but we were lucky enough to have buyers who were realists and they realized that all houses are going to have little things.

  7. I remember that feeling of relief after the home inspection!! You guys are getting so close! Enjoy the process of clearing everything out!
