We're Buying Our First Home!

Well, soon we will be! V and I were just pre-qualified for our first ever home loan!  I couldn't be happier!  We are in a really good, stable place where home ownership is within our reach, I never thought we'd get here.  We live in a area where incomes are lower and the cost of living is high, but the recession and current low interest rates have given us an amazing opportunity!

I've been looking at homes online for well over a year, it was my hobby and just a daydream.  This weekend we went to a few open houses, looked at the newspaper and had some really great talks.  It's so exciting!  V's cousin is a realtor so he'll be helping us on this journey.  Ideally we'd like a three bedroom, two bath single-family the end of this year.  We'll see!

Homeowners, past and present, advice PLEASE!

Much Love, Jen

  1. That's so exciting! I remember when we first bought our house, it was so fun. One thing you probably know already but is good to remember, prioritize what you want, but be willing to compromise. Things like countertops and wall color, and flooring can be changed, but location and basic structure can't. Good luck, it is an amazing adventure.
