|poppin' bottles; keys; their new room; first things first, privacy! :)|
We took the plunge and signed our lives away. Well for the next 30 years that is. To say that the last few weeks have been a little chaotic in our parts is an understatement. Buying a home is an emotional roller coaster I tell you!
Really quick, TWO things people don’t tell you when buying a home:
1. Forget the time frame you’re told from day one in escrow
- There are so many different people working on your folder (so to say) getting paper work back and forth, just one person can keep things from moving forward so it’s best not to get your hopes up…it’s a bonus if you close on your projected closing date.
2. Once you sign the final loan docs you do not receive the keys seconds after
- We were told that so many times we had our hopes up, come to find out the forms had to go back to the escrow office and then taken to the recording office so we could receive our keys (this is where that ONE person, of course, took their sweet time =|)
But once you do get the call to pick up your keys to your brand new home…it’s worth all the stress, sweat, getting your credit score up and tears. ;)
Family, friends and blogger-buddies, I introduce you to our new home…
