Mortgage payment

November 12th, 2015 at 07:40 am

Tuesday night, about 6 pm, the doorbell rang. It was the young woman who (with her husband) bought our last house. We decided to hold the mortgage for them, since they were having trouble with the bank.
He is now self employed and could not prove his income for the past year.
The mortgage payment is due on the 25th and she brought it on the 10th. Tha was nice!
She explained what happened to the lost check she mailed me last month. (She came over in person to give me a replacement check) It had my old address and the post office returned it to her about 10 days later!
I hope she is as prompt for the next 24 years, 8 months!
They are a wonderful couple and I got to meet their beautiful daughter, who is 2 1/2. I found out her birthday, so I can get her a little present in March.
I found a real cute large piggy bank that I am going to give the little girl for christmas. I want to get her thinking about saving at an early age!!
It is never too early to start!

    That is really great! Clearly she understands how a late payment so early in the arrangement might make you concerned, so she's taking steps to put your mind at ease. I really appreciate that type of insight and maturity in a young lady.

    In 24yrs you will be 94. At what point could they get it refinanced into their names?

    Any time they want to get it refinanced, there is no pre payment penalty. Actually, I will be 95, but my dear husband will only be a young 88! I think it would be nice to leave her (the couple) the house, free and clear, in my will. What do you think?
