Well, that took longer than I thought, but I finally am able to buy a house. I have been looking online for… well, forever, and I have finally found the one I really want. The internet has really helped with house hunting, but it took a lot longer than I thought it would. Like over a year! I am hoping that everything will go smoothly with the loans and closing. They have to get an inspector to go out and do some kind of total inspection. Costs an arm and a leg too.
You would not believe the stuff they have to look for; foundation, lot, roof, exterior, attic, and the list goes on and on. I am partially glad for it though, because so many homes today get that mold that is really bad for your health. I definitely do NOT want that in my new home, so I guess the money is worth it. Unfortunately, it is non refundable and if the report comes back bad, I am out the money. Oh well, C’estla vie !
I am really excited about my new house though. I can already envision where everything will go and am trying to figure out what colors I want in my new space. It’s a lot bigger than my apartment so my stuff will seem like there isn’t much in the house at first. Probably a good thing as we tend to collect stuff as we get older.
