The next step to being a grownup
That would be getting a house or actually the next step is getting approved for a loan to get a house. Isn’t that crazy? Well it’s completely insane to me because at my age I thought I’d be living in NYC in an apartment and single but then again I thought I’d be Carrie Bradshaw 😉
Seriously though, we put in the forms to request a loan and I’m waiting to hear if we’re approved. See because my boyfriend got divorced and had a house he had to be bought out of. That means we’re now getting out of debt and planning our future. I’m still in fear that this won’t happen, I just can’t imagine actually owning a house :O
We’ve looked at a few houses in person so far and many online. I guess it all depends on what we are approved for and we’re planning to continue to live in the area we live in now. It would be ideal to live closer to Boston but we learned very quickly that we’d have to sell our bodies to science to afford that. I suppose my commute will be a part of my life forever unless I win the lottery (which I never play) 😀
This past weekend we even looked at a condo, just for the hell of it. It was nice, it had a back porch and a gorgous kitchen. It had a garage we could fit both cars in and the most exciting thing about owning a place of any kind is having a washer and dryer set! I was a little surprised the condo cost more than most of the houses we’ve seen online.
So wish us luck…we have a long road ahead!
