It’s no news here we recently bought a new house. I’ve only been talking about it for a year. Sadly it took us most of that time to actually close on the house! When you plan on buying a house you imagine yourself moving your stuff into all the rooms, and you think you will be there in about a month. Nope, not us. During this whole process it was very important for us to stick to a budget. If you have bought a house before you know that your financials are under constant scrutiny. They want to know what you are spending and how you are spending it. Because it took us 5 months to close we had to provide our bank statements for not only those 5 months, but the 3 months prior to when we went under contract! Here is a little peek at the listing picture that sold us! : )
Being ready financially to buy a house is the most important thing you can do! It is the most stress causing dynamic to buying your future home, you know, the one you have already decided where you want to hang the family picture. This was our second house to purchase but it sure felt like the first time!
