Land Settlement ✓

Our land has finally settled today and I'm so happy. Now, all I need to do is just wait for our building permits to be approved and our construction to commence.
*happy days*

Our block is clear...

We popped in our bank today to sign our loan contracts and then visited our block of land to clean it up. I sent a message to my admin (with land pics) and supervisor has confirmed that he is happy with the site condition. Yay! :) Our land settlement is scheduled next week and I'm hoping everything goes ahead with no problems as we are leaving for overseas in the next few days.

I got a call from my bank and was advised that our valuation has been completed and it turned out to be the same as our contract price! No need to worry about LMI! Yay!!! Contracts were posted today and I should be able to receive them tomorrow so fiance and I can sign them. Thank you Lord!!! :)

still waiting...

arrrghh... still waiting for our valuation report :(  I'm hoping to hear from my bank on Tuesday or Wednesday. While waiting for this, I wanted to show you a sample of our color choices on our kitchen.

We're having the same kitchen benchtop, Ceasarstone in Cashmere, cabinets & cupboard in Laminex Espresso Ligna & glass splashback in Arava. The only differences would have to be handles and kitchen mixer tap. I'm really excited to see our selections on our new home. :) So what can you say guys???

waiting for property valuation

We've just signed our building contracts earlier today which means we are definitely getting the FHOG! Yay! :) After signing our contracts, we went to our bank to give a copy of our contracts and site plan. Our lender also ordered our property valuation and she told us it will take a week to be completed. She's aware about our impending overseas trip two weeks from now so we're hoping to get our loan formally approved before we leave. We're also praying for a positive outcome on our property valuation as we've heard not so good stories of some people having their properties undervalued for as much as $60k-$110k! Ouch! For now, there's not much we can do but to sit back, wait and pray for the best. :)

Contract Signing

It's Tuesday and we will have our contract signing tomorrow. I hope everything runs smoothly and then we're off to the bank to bring our contracts. I spoke to my lender and told her about my concerns on our loan approval time frame. I'm hoping to get everything finalised before my fiance and I leave for overseas. For now, all I can do is hope everything turns out well.
