    My turn to jump in! First contract!
    I don't get points until 2022, but I also don't pay MF until then, so..... I'M JUST HAPPY TO BE HERE.

    Day#82 - & there's a GLITCH !
    Today I emailed Member Admin. to get a status.
    Amazingly, they responded to my email within an hour.
    However, the response was that there was an "error" in the Deed Recording, and they had sent an email to the Title Co. on 11/25.
    So, I pretty much lost the entire Holiday Weekend with this sitting in Limbo.
    I contacted the Title Company, and they also responded within an hour.
    They (FATC) confirmed the error, and assured me they would be able to correct and have a new recording on 12/1.
    That's a setback of 19 Days. I will follow up with them, to be sure, but now it does not look like I will wrap this up within the 90 Day window I had estimated, based on my previous resale experience.
