Thanks everyone! I am super excited! We LOVE our new home! It's so roomy-infact too roomy! lol. We thought we had so much, and we really don't so now there's an echo! But I am glad we finally own a home now!

Smile Quality control

A lot of times (at the end), the file goes through quality control. It is my personal belief that they look for anything to make it look like they are doing their jobs. Just my personal opinion but I'm a mortgage broker and I've seen it happen.

YES! And thank you! We waited 10.5 LONG months! I will never, ever do a short sale again! lol-the price was worth it but the wait wasn't. Are you buying a new home that's a short sale?

I'll be going through the process midmonth November - not taking a loan, so hopefully, won't have problems - the builder has been behind schedule by about 30 days - I visit the home daily and haven't seen the final touch-ups being done - they better have things completed by the walk through then final clearing - I've been ultra patient w/ the builder/sales of community where I'm going to live.

You file for homestead at the Hillsborough County Property Appraiser's office. You have plenty of time, but you can file at any time. Click the link for more information and look on the right side of the page.
