With a $10k deposit it puts us just under our max budget. This pricing doesn't include the added 4ft extension to the 3rd garage. Nor have we seen our upgrade options yet, so those may change. We feel comfortable that with minor tweaks we can come in just on budget. 

Today was such a pleasant experience with Susan. All of the questions I had written down were answered before I could ask. We had some great laughs and feel very comfortable moving forward

We put in applications with our loan officer and got approval to move forward within a few hours. We have an appointment to sign our contract on Saturday. We want to lock in our lot ASAP!!
