Hi Footie,

Something different to add here;
We will be paying cash for this house, and then refinancing it in a couple months.
The owner wants to move out on July 20th and 21st - a weekend.

Given its June 6th this morning (and will probably stay that way all day ;~) you have plenty of time if you start immediately to get your purchase financing in place, at the lower purchase rates & fees.

Waiting to refinance will cost more, and be more restrictive in what you are allowed to borrow.
