After 2 summers and this winter of looking, I have finally purchased my first home. It took a little time find my home, but it is finally done. I put in a bid two days ago and the seller accepted it. I bid 19K below the asking price and got it. I am now in the process of finding homeowners insurance and figuring out what to do to save some money in the mean time. I will be on a 30 year fixed mortgage at 6.5%. It isn’t cheap, but it isn’t too bad I suppose. I will post pics of the property once I close and lets see if I can make it to closing.
