"come by to take photos of the house?!" What's up with that? If it's not fancy enough -- you don't get a surgical procedure?! This is so maddening.

Putting my frustrations aside, congrats on your milestone! You've been through a lot, so you deserve the best treatment!

johnny
single level adr is estimated at 24,051 euros
and another 400 euro for the back brace.
i can only pray that the dollar increases against the euro real soon.

This may or may not be a trend, but the Euro has just decreased in value relative to the dollar....

Chuck,

I’m glad you’re moving forward on getting your life back. I had to take out a loan while I was on Medical Leave but they didn’t take pictures of my house. With the rise in home prices, they were happy to get me into debt.

I will be following your journey so keep us posted.

Good luck Chuck! I wonder if it would be worth buying a forward or an option on the Euro to lock in the lower price? Has anyone ever done that? When you're talking about 30K small changes have a much larger effect....

I think you can buy options (forwards etc) if you have a brokerage account and it could save people a pretty penny if the exchange rate rises... but if it lowers you lose the forward rate and pay the transaction costs... hmmm
