With a favorable home inspection report in hand, we passed the point of no return on our purchase of House #3. We decided to get serious about getting a formal quotation from the architect and contractor who had visited the property earlier and given us an informal quotation on our original list of improvement projects. We sat down and inserted more specific details about what we wanted and added a few more projects that we needed to do while construction workers would be on the premises.
Once again, it took a bit of time to convince the contractor and architect to invest even more time on a formal quote before we were actually owners. (I give lots of credit to Brooke Bishop, one of our GoDutch Realtors, for making our case with these guys.)
