Most of us today need mortgages and we are no different although ours will be fairly small. I read the email from the IMMS and was a bit concerned about sending them information about any mortgage I might have already set up. I am assured by the builder though, that this is a legitimate request as the New Horizon financier likes to see confirmation of mortgages and they want to manage the flow of information coming in hence the request to use one mortgage broker to handle details regardless of where one might have gotten their mortgage. So IMMS is "representing" New Horizon.

Probably most of you already knew this but as I have said before, I feel like a first time buyer again as we have not gone through this process in over 25 years.

March Update

Great news! Our builder provided me with some fantastic news yesterday. He is more than willing to help promote the blog to all the owners. This should really help us get together and start becoming a cohesive group as the moves begin. Perhaps we can schedule a party late August after the last move to get to know everyone.

I also expect to get some interior pictures soon! so you can all see the current progress.

I will keep you up to date as things transpire. Only a month or so to go before the first folks move into the first floor (I think)

Latest news

I tried to get some pictures at night so I could see inside and find out how things are progressing but didn't have my camera with me as I passed by so used my camera phone.  Not good enough to print.

Work though is moving along nicely and I have asked the builder if I can get onsite to take some regular interior photos to show how things are going. Will see what happens. In the meantime, you have likely received a notice as we did about a Mortgage company wanting details. Since this is our first new home in 25 years I have also asked to verify who this firm is. While we anticipate a small mortgage (mostly due to all our upgrades) we also hope the rates will be low. I am seeing 2.99 percent out there. Is anyone finding better rates or is it too early?

Will get some more pictures soon even if only outside (not much happening to the exterior though)
Keep reading and tell your friends to visit. We have over 2,200 page views to date! Thanks

12th March Update

My sister and I visited the site today and casually chatted with some of the workers.

Walls (gyprock) are being installed on the 3rd floor already!

Great news I am sure,especially for those moving in some time in May (I assume all April folks on the 1st floor got moved to May on last delay)

Keep visiting the blog and let me know if you hear or see anything. Only a month or two left until moving starts (4.5 months for my move in August)
