There hasn't been very much to write about this week. We have our meeting with Guardian Technologies on Monday. This is where they do a presentation and try to get us to buy a whole bunch of things we have no intention of buying - a security system, surround sound, and other such things. The only thing we plan on getting are extra phone and cable jacks since you only get one of each per floor. This is probably the only time where my husband could be sucked into buying something we didn't plan on buying :) We'll see what happens.
And since I don't have anything else to report, I'll just complain about incentives. My complaint is that WE AREN'T GETTING ANY!!! I've known this all along, but after reading about the awesome incentives other people are getting, I really am disappointed. My favorite Ryan incentive out there is the free finished basement! How awesome is that! That's an $11,000 savings (at least for our model)! My next favorite is that Ryan will pay for half of your upgrades up to $16,000 - so they'd actually pay for $8,000 in upgrades. I could think of quite a few things that money could go towards. Then there is the free upgrade to stainless steel appliances. Its not as big as the other incentives, but it's still a pretty sweet free upgrade. I'd take it! But, no. Our plan is in such demand that they don't need to give incentives because they know that they will sell the sites regardless. Oh well. I guess our incentive is that we'll have an awesome house in a great community!
