In other house news, the appraisal was completed on the home. Everything came back good concerning the value of the home, which was a sigh of relief, but we did not have enough time to complete our other inspections before the contract deadline. We quickly submitted an extension on our contract, which is fine, but it will push back our close date. Womp, womp. We were excited about the prospect of closing on our home on the 29th, Good Friday, but some times these things happen. We still have enough time to move our things and get the rental cleaned up for turn over, but it would have been nice to have had extra time so as not to rush.
Our next big inspection is the home inspection which will take place on Thursday. We'll be driving down to Pa so that we can walk through the property with the home inspector, and hopefully he or she will be able to give us some keen insight on its condition. Our realtor has said that the inspection will take a good 3 to 4 hours, so we will have a ton of information to process. Maybe we'll even have a few pictures to post. :)

Despite a few minor setbacks, we're still very excited to soon be first time home owners. Mid-April can't come soon enough!
Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations regarding the home inspection process? Is there anything that we need to do to prepare for the walk-through? I thought perhaps a pen and pad of paper to take notes would be helpful, but if any of you (all, like, 3 of you) reading this have been through the process, perhaps you might have some wisdom to share?
