Will be our lucky (we hope!) day. We close Friday on our brand new house in Lexington which is just outside of Columbia. I also officially retire at the end of the week and become a man of leisure. The missus & I have been planning & preparing for this for several years but it always seemed like a long way off till it wasn't.
Just as an aside, I hadn't bought a house in 15 years and the process of getting a home loan post-recession has been an eye-opening experience to say the least. It was a breeze in 2003, more like a hurricane in 2018.
