As I mentioned before, we are in the process of looking to buy a house in Colorado. After a quick online assessment of a few things such as getting our credit report online and finding out what our budget is, it is crazy to think that in the state of California, we would be able to afford a run-down 3 bedroom fixer upper for around $400,000.
The idea of buying a house is so exciting to us! (Eli was up until midnight last night looking at houses on the online Realtor portal that she opened for us to “e-tour”)
I am planning in my head how to decorate (and can’t wait to have a separate ”living room” and “family room.” ) Pinterest is evil!
It is such a big deal to us to go down this path. We have been saving since we became engaged, Eli has the free credit score website saved on his bookmarks monitoring everything, we have been consolidating our (my)
insanely gigantic student loans, and paying off credit card debt. All of this effort has finally paid off, and we are about to embark on an exciting pathway of becoming first time home-buyers. And we couldn’t be more thrilled.
