We have finally got all of the stuff done and finished the process of buying our first house. It was a lot more difficult than we would have liked and of course there were a lot of snags on the way. The only really problem with the house was that we needed to find someone who can exterminate termites in NYC. It was not in the house itself, but in one of the trees on the property. It is certainly close enough to the house where you want to be safe rather than sorry, so we got rid of them as quickly as we figured out what we had to do. I am not really sure how they could have gotten in the house, since we have a brick facade on the structure and it seems as though leaves them with very few points of entry.
