My fiance and I have been on the look for a house to buy recently. We have been looking for most of the month of February. We've seen probably around 30 homes and have liked a grand total of 3. We are at the point where we are considering making an offer on one of them that we liked. One that we liked sold the next week after we saw it. The other one we thought we were going to put an offer on but then we saw this one and are certain it is the one for us. It is a little bigger with a finished basement for the same amount of money.
Here is what we are looking at. The asking price for the home is just under $165k. The home is in a suburb off of Kansas City on the Kansas side in Johnson County. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths (one in the master bedroom), a nice kitchen, dining room, living room and a finished basement. I am so excited about the house. I think we are going to drive by it again tonight after work and then let our agent know we are wanting to put in an offer. After figuring up some numbers we have figured out that buying this house will cost us about $200 more then our current rent. This will make things tight for the next few months because we are still trying to save everything we can for the wedding and aren't willing to compromise that. After the wedding we will still be saving but it will losen up the strings a bit and life will get a little more comfortable. Thus, things will be a little tight for about 3 or 4 months.
Anyways, I've been so busy lately with work, wedding planning, and house shopping that I haven't gotten to post so I figured I better put out a new post to let everyone know what's been going on.
