Carrie, I agree with Ira, that's bullpucky. There is no way they are paying $700 per day. They may be paying $700 per day on all of their homes under construction, but not for one home under construction. For me it was very simple. We just called them and asked them. It was no big deal at all. The house was for $134K and it was 1997 so interest rates were a little higher then, but not more than two percent or so, so if I were you I would just call them up, tell them you'll pay them an extra $X to move the closing 30 days later. What can they say? If they say no you have lost nothing. It is definitely worth it for $3000-6000. Good luck.
