Mortgage Chips To Date; BF House Update

November 4th, 2015 at 08:05 am

I have made my scheduled mortgage payment, along with an extra $2.86. I received another $25 credit from WF Home Rewards Visa. My new balance is $167,625.00.

Chips to date: $1,815.42

Interest savings this month: $6.54

Interest savings to date: $119.45

Eventually, the interest savings on the chips I have already made will compound to $3,882.41, provided I own this house until the mortgage is paid in full. Which I won't. Stick Out Tongue

Well, BF's house is still in escrow. The final inspections have been done, resulting in a very short list of requests from the buyers. They wanted another pest inspection to determine if mice are present (old droppings found in the attic), they wanted the antenna removed from the roof, and they wanted "debris" (mostly pine needles) removed from the roof and rain gutters. Those were all reasonable requests and they have all been done. Just waiting now for it to close. Maybe this week; maybe not.

I let BF use my credit cards to charge property taxes for his timber property. Three parcels, 100+ acres in total with several houses and other buildings. The county would have auctioned them off for back taxes next week. Oh, that man. Mad He had been counting on the house selling well before now, but it just did not work out that way. I was pretty stressed about becoming financially responsible to repay those taxes. BF took out a term life insurance policy on himself to benefit me, just in case something should happen to him before the house sale is final, because I would be really screwed. With "convenience fees", the property taxes came to right at 18k. The three parcels are worth 800k-ish.

    I would be a little worried too, if I had to pay those taxes. Let's hope that the house closes real, real soon!!

    Lol, the term life policy isn't THAT big. Smile
    Yes, I will get some nice cash back rewards. And yes, I am hoping as hard as I can that the sale closes soon. The lender said this week, BF's realtor is betting next Monday. We will see.
