After almost 1 year of looking, we’re 90% on our way to get our first home! We’ve signed the purchase contract and are now just waiting from the bank for confirmation. It’s kind of scary, though. We decided to get a home before getting married because of the great housing market at the tax credit. I guess I’m just feeling overwhelmed because it’s all happening at once.
Anyone else in the same boat?

We bought our house 4 years ago now, it was so stressful back then and I’m not looking forward to selling and buying a new one!

yay, sending good thoughts your way!
@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: i totally agree!! we bought 2 years ago, and it was the single most stressful time for both my fiance and i. i’m glad i love our house, because i’m not interested in doing that again for a loong time. 🙂

thanks for the positive thoughts ladies!
i’m going to have to agree with both of you. i don’t think i’ve been this stressed at any point in my life, EVER. i can’t believe how difficult it was, and i’ve been around real estate my whole life..my mom’s a Realtor!
it’s comforting to know i’m not alone, i’m just glad i didn’t freak out as bad as i thought i would. 😛

Congrats! We also decided to buy a home now because of the market and the tax credit….but I wanted to get married first, so we ended up with a short engagement (however long relationship previous to engagement)…..it was so stressful buying a home….we closed a week late….but IT WAS SO WORTH IT! Good luck!

Yay! Congratulations! We also just bought our first home – it’ll be a month on the 14th since we closed. We’re barely recovering from the move and haven’t completely settled in yet!

Next week is my 5th year anniversary at my home and I cannot believe how time has flown. This time 5 years ago I was more than stressed but it is all worth it. 🙂
CONGRATULATIONS and sending you positive thoughts 🙂
