I have a house being built and was wondering if anyone believes in “signs” pointing toward or away from something. First, I love the community this house is in, but am wondering if I should ask for an already built house and have them stop working on the custom designed house I have signed the contract for (they have done this in the past with other residents when emergencies came up and residents needed a place sooner than their house would be available). Also, there is just the framing right now, all the choices/customized options have not been installed yet. There is also a house that’s relatively the same price that is available immediately. So here the warning “signs” are for my custom home:
My attorney is called up for Iraq starting right around the closing date
My employer won’t be available to verify employment around the closing date (she’ll be out of town on vacation)
One of the construction workers fell on his head when putting up the framing.
When walking through, the temporary front door had the word “evil” written on it.
Not to mention, who knows how the mortgage industry will change within the next month and a half (standards seem to be getting tighter weekly, yet I still, as of today, qualify).
What would you do? Ask to move in earlier into the already built home, or take the risk of something else going wrong? Would you take these “signs” as a warning or just as an obstacle? I’m usually not superstitious, but this is my first home and well, I’m already overly worried, having this added to my worries, well, just doesn’t seem to help.
