Well it's official! My fiance and I went out to some open houses last Sunday and decided that we were ready to begin looking for our future home to purchase. We decided on a realtor we like and got pre approved for a mortgage. Now all we have to do is find that perfect house!
We are in a lease at our current house until the end of July. Therefore, we are hoping to find a house that we can close on sometime in June or July. We decided that we wanted to buy a house now because we are tired of paying so much for rent. For what we currently pay in rent, we can buy a house about the same size. For a couple hundred dollars more a month we can get a bigger nicer house then where we currently live.
We aren't out looking for a mansion. We've decided on the things important to us. We are looking for a 2 or 3 bedroom house. We would like a basement that is finished. A deck or patio area in the backyard and we will be set! Our next plan is to search through some homes on our realtor website and then go check them out with her. Hopefully we'll find something we like in a price range we can afford!
