Under Contract

We have a signed contract on the newly constructed home!! We're taking the next steps:

1. Measure opening for refrigerator
2. Home inspection scheduled for Monday at 8am
3. Search for refrigerator, washer, and dryer
4. Call our bank to get mortgage paperwork rolling

We're not required to have it inspected, and since it's brand new and never lived-in, we have considered this option, but just because the house is new doesn't mean it's perfect. So, for reassurance, we're having it inspected. Texas inspectors follow the rules of the Texas Real Estate Commission, requiring licensure. New Mexico inspectors have an association they can join, but no license requirements. They simply take a few courses and are called an "inspector." In order to get a truly licensed inspector, we went with someone from Texas.

Updates to come...
