I am a bundle of nerves right now!
Greg and I have seen about 10 condo's at this point and are thinking that we are going to go in the opposite direction and get a House instead! Saturday we took some time and drove down to a neighborhood where I have seen a lot of homes online that are in our price range. We have heard mixed reviews of the neighborhood and were not sure what we were going to see. As we drove into the neighborhood, we saw charm, families and lots of opportunity! Of course just like any other town or village, there is good and bad parts, but the homes that we saw were located in the good. It was like a sigh of relief! So after almost an hour and a half of driving block by block and looking at homes we decided that, YES we are going to keep looking in this area and see what we can do with our money.
Today I am calling the bank to see about getting a pre-approval letter for a mortgage. Hopefully we will be approved for an amount that will meet our needs for these homes. We don't want to get in over our heads, but this could be just what we are looking for. Fingers Crossed!
