Yay! They got the loan!!!

Just got an email from Mum...

They were just told they got their homeloan, WHOO HOOO!!!!

This has been an ongoing saga for the past few months, with them having to go through a broker in their town, who seemed to be giving them the run around. Settlement day on the land was yesterday. and as off last Friday, everything was up in the air, the broker was abusing Mum over the phone for calling him too often (she'd called him 3 times in 6 weeks), and he hadn't done anything he was supposed to do. Step-dad stepped in and fired the guy and my parents decided to go directly through the state-government department, and discovered the services of a very friendly and polite gentleman in town who bent over backward to help them meet the deadline yesterday...

So, now they'll start building later this year, and hopefully by early next year they'll be in their own home.

This has been a lifelong dream of Mum's (who last came close when she bought a house in Iceland 24 years ago - a house she ended up having to sell at a HUGE because of the break up of her marriage to dad)...

I'm sooo happy for them!

Oh that's great for your twin..oops I mean your mum ! ;) :)
What a loser that guy is for making her feel bad for following up on HER BUSINESS. Geez! But hey how exciting. A space all her own. Nothing better.
