A Nice Thorough Walkthrough of ... OUR FIRST HOME!!!

The bank just signed the final contract tonight (although we've known for a week or so that the place is ours)! Our loan papers are all signed. We are waiting now for the bank to fill the propane tank so we can have the inspection and VA Appraisal, and then we'll be able to close as soon as the title paperwork is done. (It will be no later than July 17th)...

This is located in Stafford, VA. It has 4 bedrooms (upstairs - more in the basement, but that's going to be my studio). 3.5 baths. It's 3900 sq ft (the basement is 1000 finished sq ft, so above grade is 2900). It sits on .63 acres and NOT in a development! It has a private well and septic.

Anyway, we're probably 75% packed right now. This place is great because other than a good cleaning, there's not really anything that needs done right away before we can move in. Still deciding on a paint scheme since it's so open and everything has to match...

Upstairs Hallway (Bath on left. bedroom straight. another bedroom to the right of that).

Bath. (Have to find out from the inspector if that discoloration is something the bank needs to fix with the water or if it's just stained - we think it is since none of the sinks or anything are like that).
