I think your suspicions is correct, that they swell throughout the day, but I've heard conflicting information on this topic.
Thanks for your validation. I usually pride myself on having more of a sense of humor. Today, however, I've been on the phone repeatedly between patients with real estate attorneys, the IRS and my mortgage company. I just missed my mortgage commitment date and had to ask the seller's attorney for an extension and delayed closing date because of one missing piece of paper: my 2012 tax return, which the IRS would not release because some stooge was requesting for the wrong social security number. Argh. If only these people were as cheery and helpful as Kathy from Alden of DC or the leffot folks.
Not sure which is more difficult: closing on a house when you've got the money for it or finding the shell you're looking for even when you're willing to shell out north of $700 for it.
Rant over. If you think I need to chill, you should see the tension that's developed over at the AE site. Our Alden boy Mediahound is getting lambasted for asking the AE CEO a simple and fair question.
Heading to bed with fingers crossed for the IRS to cooperate with the mortgage goons and for whiskey shell that my swollen toes will fit comfortably in. Best of luck, fellow aficionados, with finding your next wished-for Alden!
