So this whole house hunting thing is becoming a bit more real. I contacted a Realtor, who came recommended by a friend, and she pointed me in the direction of a few different lenders to get my pre-approval letter. Yikes! I’m not worried about getting approved. My credit score is good (though I should recheck that) and I have a solid down payment and a solid job. But it’s still a little scary. I feel like I’m venturing into unknown territory.
Thankfully, I not only have friends who have done this before, but I have very supportive coworkers who are happy to answer questions. It’s still pretty scary to think about though. There’s just so much I don’t know. I am finding myself very thankful for my real estate transactions professor in law school who insisted we be able to read rental contracts and home purchase contracts though!
