Just bought a new house. It's our first house. Yes, I'm very excited.
Everything has been smooth so far. Hopefully, this continues until we get settled in. As soon as the finances were in order, I told my realtor I wanted to buy a house the first day we went out looking. We scoped out some houses that looked good on paper. Reality can shine a harsh light sometimes. Good thing we came across this newly renovated, move-in ready townhome that had just got listed that morning. I insisted we write the contract immediately. We were the first one to give an offer on the house (but not the only ones).
We've had the house inspected and it was alright. Nothing major.
We close at the end of the month. June seems to be crawling by at a snail's pace.
