Awesome news! You’ll enjoy this time looking, but it will be stressful. Just remember not to budge on your requirements (both price and everything else) and try to be patient. I’m sure the right house will come at the right time. (And right price!!)  Have fun looking and good luck!

That’s awesome!! I am in the same boat. We just got our offer accepted on a new 2005 home, 3 bed-2 bath for 140,000. We are sooo stoked! Luckily we live in a rural area so housing prices are fabulous. I am a mortgage loan processor, so my boss is doing our loan for us and getting us a great deal on closing costs and stuff. Good luck to you in your housing hunt!! It’s great fun although be prepared to be patient, it can be a very long process!!

Congrats! We just bought in the summer and although it was SOO stressful going through the process, it is awesome being a homeowner!!

The timing really depends on the situation. We started looking in February and had an offer accepted in March and closed 2 months later. But I have friends who did short slaes and it tooks 6 months-a year.

Enjoy! And just remember to take into consideration all those extra costs that add up-home inspection, closing costs, etc.
