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.
And you have made so many improvements inside and out!!! You have added color and style and your tender care of your yard has paid off.
