The Wait Is Over!
Ahhhh, I can finally share the GREAT news!!
The bf and I finally got the word from the underwriter-we are approved for first our home loan!!!
I have been waiting for this call since March. From the constant back and forth with the loan counselor, from things looking good then bad, and now the approval we were waiting for.
We started looking at townhomes back in March. Our thought is that even with a home, we would have a yard which is constant up keep along with money. Right now with the bf still in school, we wanted a place that we could own, not one that would own us on the weekends. Thats how we decided on a townhome.
I immediately fell in love with our community as soon as we drove in. It has town homes, single family homes, a few pools, clubhouse, gym, even an elementary school. The community itself sold it. Then the prices along with the options to customize it OUR way and build it from the ground up was an offer we couldnt turn down. We thought it over for maybe a week and then put down our deposit. Ever since we have been paying off debts and saving our pennies. At this point, the house is in the dry wall phase. There are projecting closing on August 17th! This all seems surreal. We picked out our appliances, our cabinets, our floor-everything for our first home. I'm so excited and I'm so relieved to finally enjoy the process!!
