It's Becoming Reality

Up until now, I hadn't allowed my brain to wrap around the idea that I am going to be a HOME OWNER! With being so busy with going to the doctor, chiropracter, starting school, and packing I really haven't allowed myself to get too excited.

It started to dawn on me that it's becoming a reality! I'm going to have my very own home! No more listening to 5:30am arguments. No more wet newspapers angrily thrown at my front door. No more "signs" telling me what I may or may not do. No more hearing stomping up and down the stairs from the neighbors. No more, I say! No more... LOL

So what brought me closer to this reality? I received my homeowner's insurance policy yesterday. :) Today, I locked in my mortgage rate. For 3 weeks, I've been calling the 800 number and getting the rate. Up until today the rate had stayed the same with cost of points rising. Today I called and not only had the rate dropped, so did the cost of points! Incidentally, I just heard on the radio that mortgage rates are the lowest they've been since May. Yay for me!

"Would you like to lock in your rate today, Ma'am?"

You bet I would!

I also received confirmation today for the walk-thru before closing. On Friday, I will call and have the utilities switched over. The big day will be here before I know it! :)

I am so happy for you. All those years of searching were well worth it. Can we see some more pictures of the house once you have moved in?

I love reading your blog and I'm so happy for you (though I will miss those neighbor stories!)You can say goddbye to those people, the wet basement(yuck!) and do what you want in your own home. Congratulations and best wishes!(p.s.-I'm a Realtor so I know exactly what you're going through now.Sounds like it's all coming together- again, best wishes!)Nancy in NY

I am so glad that you get to move. You sure you don't want to move next door to me...the house is up for sale....my neighbors are still pulling their you know what on me and they are trying to make my life as miserable as they can but it isn't working.

I am so happy for you though that you finally get your own home and you can do what you want...good for you...oh and congratulations on your stash buying too...you deserve it....

Take care,
Linda K

congratulations : ) My DH & I were renters for many many years. It was quite exciting for us when we finally purchased a home. Enjoy

So how many more hours until moving day??? :)

It is an exciting time isn't it? Just wait for the unpacking stage. It felt like Christmas for days. Decorating, unpacking, finding the right place for each item.

I almost envy you. Except for the fact that I don't ever want to have to pack up again. :)

Best wishes on your new home adventure. I remember when I went through that and I know how much fun you'll have. I'm now back to renting again (on my own and just not able to keep up a home). I'm looking forward to pics of the inside of your home to see all the lovely decorating you'll be doing.
