This was sitting in my drafts! What a tragedy I never published it, so here we are. 🙂 I bought a house almost four years ago now – and I love it!Yep, I bought a house. It honestly feels rather strange to finally be able to say that. This has been a dream of mine for years, and something I have worked towards most of my adult life. The process to buy a house has take me a lot longer than I thought it could ever take. But, here I am. A Homeowner!
The process was definitely not for the faint of heart. Here is just a snapshot of what it took to get here:
- Start Date: met with my Realtor February 19. End Date: closed August 24.
- I put in 15 offers before I was accepted. 15. That fifteen contracts signed, fifteen bank pre-approval letters I needed to hunt down, and fifteen cover letters I had to write, pouring my heart out for houses I fell in love with.
- Of those fifteen, four of those houses I truly loved. So, that’s three complete heartbreaks of thinking I found “the one” and learning the sellers didn’t agree.
But now I have my own home! It is something I am so proud of, especially since I did it as a single woman. Girl Power! I love my home, and can’t wait to make it my own.
