Sacramento Closing Delays Due to FHA MIP Reduction

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

My husband keeps asking me how I am feeling after my arthroscopy surgery yesterday, and I wish he would just stop. This is what drugs do to you. They can make you highly irritable. Or, in my case, just the same as I always am. LOL. Actually, the recovery process and the surgery itself went well. I survived yesterday, but only because I took my cellphone to bed, and that was enough entertainment for one day.

I was a bit surprised that they didn't prescribe Vicodin but they said you can't get that drug anymore. The Powers that Be decided the drug contained too much acetaminophen. So, now they prescribe a drug that sounds like a northern California real estate conference.

When they discharged me from the Same Day Surgery over at U.C. Davis, they gave me a patient Thank You card. This where all of the nurses, attendants and doctors sign, wishing you a speedy recovery. You know they don't mean it, and they're just following protocol, but it was still cute. At least nobody drew a hanging dead guy on it.

I did my best to maintain a positive attitude, even when buyer's agents were pleading for my sellers to let their transactions roll into February so the buyers can take advantage of the upcoming much reduced FHA mortgage insurance premium to .85%. This means a lot of Sacramento escrows are being delayed. Some sellers care about helping the buyer and others do not. But what else is new?

Gotta love your line, "You know they don't mean it, and they're just following protocol, but it was still cute. At least nobody drew a hanging dead guy on it."  I know the feeling!

Be kind to Adam!  You need someone to feed the cats for us!
