I bought my first house! Talk about being a big girl. That’s me! I feel so adult. And I really am so happy. I can’t believe I didn’t do this earlier. It is a very satisfying feeling. I never knew how much renting stressed me out. I never feel really comfortable. I always felt like I was guest. Strange, huh? But now I have my own place that I can do whatever I like. It’s great! I took a lot of work to make it happen and it’s not nearly as simple as they make it seem on House Hunters, but I believe it can work for a lot of people. If you have never bought a home before, but you’d like to, just talk to a lender. See what’s possible and if you do qualify for something. Turns out I qualified all along, I just didn’t have a lot of confidence in myself. The best part about the house. I am only paying $150 a month more than what I paid in rent and it’s so much more than my old apartment.
