A Maryland Purchase Settlement For The Book! The BABY Book That Is!
One Of My Very Favorite Settlements!
Once upon a time, Maryland Mortgage Mama met with a lovely couple to talk about their interest in buying their first home in Maryland. They brought their beautiful, smart and incredibly well-behaved five year old princess to the appointment and were very pregnant with their 2nd.
We talked a bit, reviewed their financial health and credit history, discussed their loan options and and by the end of our meeting we determined they were ready to head out with their realtor, Bridget Oppenheimer, to find the right place for them to live with their growing family.
Some were too big, and some were too small, but soon they found a castle that was just right for both of their princesses, the contract was negotiated and the settlement date was scheduled for a week before the expected arrival of the newest princess.
As the snow fell around Maryland, it seems that the little angel mixed up the settlement date with her due date! Or maybe she decided that she didn't want Mama and Daddy to settle on the home without her. Everyone decided that a mom in labor may not be in the best humor to sign the thousand or so papers needed to purchase a home these days, so settlement was put on hold.
Harper came into this world just before 1 AM...Mom, Dad and Baby did great! Big sister got to visit and hold her new baby sister. By 9 AM, this new Mama said..."Let's get this party started! How soon can we settle? We want to bring our family right to the new house!" With a little maneuvering, a fabulous closing team at the lender, a flexible seller, a great title company with a closer ready to do what needed to be done-no matter the weather, settlement was rescheduled for 2 PM AT THE HOSPITAL, just 13 hours after the birth of this gorgeous new baby! I have had a baby at a settlement, but this is the first time we have brought settlement to the baby!
Both Aunt Bridget's (Bridget Oppenheimer (R) and Bridget "Maryland Mortgage Mama" McGee) got to hold the sweet angel, while Uncle Adam Hyp walked mom and dad through the settlement papers, the keys to the castle were handed over and photos were taken!
....AND they ALL lived HAPPILY EVER AFTER!
