Today, Bobby and I took a big first step toward the purchase of our first home; I am happy to report that we are now pre-approved for a loan!
It's one thing to update our budget, take a long, hard look at our finances...and say, "yeah, it looks like we're set. Let's go buy a house!"
It's quite another thing for the bank to examine our financial circumstances...and agree.
(Our loan officer's actual words were, "Go find a house!" To which I replied, "We'd love to!")
The home-buying process (as I well-know from my time working in the real estate world) is one with many, many steps along the way. Still, to have made significant headway in the not-so-insignificant funding aspect of the process, seems a momentous occasion...worth celebrating in some small way!
We are so excited & proud & motivated, and we cannot wait to build upon the momentum of today.
We are officially in the market for our first home, and I just have a feeling...this is going to be fun.
"Hey, Bobby...for real this time...let's go buy a house!"
