I never thought the day would actually come when I would be investing in a home of my own! It just doesn’t seem quite possible to me. It really says something about the markets these days when my fiancée and I can actually afford to buy! We are so excited with this new chapter in our lives together and quite nervous as to what the future will bring.
I am also very happy to not have to move again for awhile after this next big one. I think I have moved every year for the past 6 or 7 years! All throughout school, dorms, apartments, condos, roomies, limited space, dirty laundry . . . . good times! And it seems every year that I move the more crap I have accumulated. So I guess moving isn’t such a bad thing because it forces me to get rid of junk that would otherwise keep piling up, right?
We have opened escrow and are now waiting to get all the financial stuff squared away and close within 45 days. We are hoping that we will get to move in mid-May when school is over for the semester! Lots to think about!
What is good about this townhouse, even though it is a foreclosure, is everything is in really good shape and still has all the appliances. Most foreclosures we have seen have been completely trashed with everything missing. We will just have to clean the carpets and splash some paint on the walls for now.
Here is the kitchen, we like it because it’s a really open floorplan, conducive to lots of cooking while still being able to talk to guests!
Here is the living room . . .
I really try my hardest to avoid using that stove like the plague in the summer. It’s so hard because you know how I love a good baked casserole and broiled pasta.
Here is the master! I’ve never had a room this spacious.
Peace from the master bath!
And a laundry room without those dang stackables where I can only fit like 2 pairs of jeans in it!! Hallelujah for a full-sized washer and dryer!

Any words of advice on house ownership?
