So, unexpectedly, I found it. The house.
Put in an offer. Liked their counter. Ratified the contract yesterday.
Inspection this week. If all goes as planned, closing before the end of February. Yikes!
The interior of the house is amazing. Completely re-done. All new appliances. Very energy efficient. The front landscaping is nice, but the backyard needs work. New fence, some sort of storage shed, etc. Going to be pricey, but not as expensive as it could be. Now I’m debating how much money to put down. I want to keep a decent amount of cash on hand for the extra work I want to do. But I also want to keep my mortgage costs low. I’ve been using an online calculator to figure out just how much my payments will be. Next step is to start looking at the mortgage rates being offered me. Cross your fingers that everything goes well!
