Moving Day - Part 1

It's moving day, moving day!!! This is moving day #1. I have been up since 4:30am - ugh! But I'll be running on adrenaline for the next 48 hours at least! We go to the NVR title company this morning and then start packing at the old house. We'll get the keys sometime this afternoon - although the house will be open for the cable guy to get in there - I was able to get them to come in earlier!!!

My husband and I visited a Ryan model last week and fell in love. Today, however, I had to opportunity to get online and read some reviews of Ryan Homes, most of which were just horrible. I was relieved to find your blog. I still have a lot of uncertainty and not sure about which direction we'll go in. I do have a question though. What was the total you spent in upgrades? My husband and I are looking at a model that starts in the $210s and I'm wondering how feesible it would be to keep the final product under $250,000. We've talked with the agent at the model, but haven't gon any further yet. Thanks! Good luck with your mvoe.

I did +/- $40k in upgrades. Glad you found me! We're taking a break from packing up the Uhaul right now - and our keys are ready @ the model!! Only 2 hours after signing title and the keys are ours!!

Thanks so much for your help! Today we drove through a few other Ryan plans as we try to decide on our location. My husband had a question - when you are in the choosing upgrades stage is that something that you must decide when you're meeting with the Ryan agent, or are you able to take a sheet of options and costs home to decide? Just wondering how much time you have to consider all of the options. Thank you so much and hope your move is going well!

@ Anonymous: 14 days from signing our contract you have to make upgrades. Look back at my January 2nd post for more info. And then a couple of posts later you'll see I added some more upgrades and got the penalty fee waived. Good Luck!!
