It actually went pretty smoothly.
Went through the final walk-through inspection, and then went to the closing.
Signed documents for about 30 minutes as the title agent explained various things to us.
After that, we went to Home Depot and had some keys made, as the ONLY key available in Colorado was the one in the lock box. The absentee owners in Kailifornia have the only other key.
I'll be completely re-keying the place in the next day or two!
One small snag in that the "voluntary" pool and tennis court association turns out to be NOT voluntary! It's $400/year, and was another screw-up by the listing agent, who didn't verify what the absentee owners had told her.
Since we have relatives that like to swim, and my wife's friends back in Kalifornia all swim, and will be visiting, we just sighed and accepted it.
Our agent is having a professional cleaning service go by Wednesday morning to clean the place top-to-bottom for us, as a "housewarming gift". My wife is overjoyed at that, as she was planning on spending a couple of days doing that.
And I have to go through the place top-to-bottom and make an inventory of light bulbs to replace, as there are quite a few either burned-out, or way mismatched in the fixtures.
The U-Boxes are being delivered Friday, and the fence and tree guys are scheduled for next week, and the roofers a few days later, weather permitting.
And we just realized that since the wood-burning fireplace has an unknown history, we need to schedule a "chimney sweep" to come and inspect/clean/report on the status of it.
And we're both TRASHED after all the running around today.....
