I wanted to be sure I would have enough money to pay off the rental house mortgage this month so I went ahead and requested a payoff quote. The bank made me go through a long phone recording and finally I could pick between a faxed quote for an extra $30 charge or a quote by mail. Gee, I wonder which one to choose? The total came to $3,425 which is around $26 more than what I expected but that is not a big deal. They will mail the quote and then I will have to get a cashier's check from the bank and mail it to them with the quote.
Now I just have to wait for the quote to arrive and wait for payday and rent day to arrive on the 25th. Only one week from tomorrow and, if all goes well, I can finally finish this major step and move on to the next goal.
