Home Inspection... Not so bad?

Due to the woes of late pregnancy exhaustion I'm several days late updating the latest on our first home purchase process. I really, really, wish I had remembered to take pictures as we went along. Overall things were not bad. The roof needs to be replaced in "3-5 years" as we expected, there's some damage to the furnace (the seller agreed to have that serviced), there's oxidation around the connections for the hot water heater and a double tap in the electrical panel in the workshop garage (which they'll be putting money into our escrow account to pay for those repairs). Things could have gone a lot worst so I am thankful! 

Now here's the real kicker- we live on the east coast of Virginia. We've weathered dozens of hurricanes. Apparently some people have not had as much luck as we have and most insurance companies will not provide a homeowners insurance policy. It's completely frustrating going through the lengthy quote process just to receive a 10 second "sorry but we can't write a policy for that area" call. But alas! Thank you Allstate! Looks like we are also changing our car insurance to them as well. 

Can things get any more hectic for one month?
