My husband and I are in the process of buying a new home.
And this will be OUR FIRST HOME.
And so far this has been a pretty smooth process (let me knock on some wood real quick). Okay, done!
Now what was I saying..?
When we first got married all we could afford was an apartment. Which was totally fine for us newlyweds. We lived in an apartment for about 6 months and decided it would be a wise decision for us to move in with my parents so we could pay off some debt. Once Robby got a new job and after we were done paying off our debt, we decided it was about the right time to get a place of our own again. So we went back to the apartment building we first started at because owning a home was for future plans.
We walked into the leasing office and what was once our monthly rent payment of a little less then $800.. went up to $1,050 to $1,070.
Gee-weezz girlfriend. That's as much as some mortgage payments!
That's the day Robby and I started talking seriously about buying a house.
We said, "why spend all this money on rent when it could go towards our own home?"
So we looked around at different communities, looked at older homes, tried to figure out what city would be best for us and we finally decided and we got approved.
We went Thursday (7/19/12) to take some pictures in front of the lot where our house will be built.
Looks like my hair was excited too. Oh my!
We went back to our lot on Sunday (7/22/12) and they already started digging!! Our garage will be on the right side and front door on the left.
