Erin and I went to speak with a realtor this morning. It happens to be the same lady who helped Judd get into the place he purchased a month or so ago. She seems extremely great and willing to work with us, which I suppose is why Judd ended up working with her to begin with. I consider Judd an excellent judge of people in general.
The Short Form: we probably can’t afford a very nice (big) house, but it’s always possible that somewhere out there lies in wait a nice little 1500 sq ft two bedroom home for under $550,000.
The Longer Form: we need to figure out exactly what we want in a home, and then start looking. We need to speak with a lender to see if anyone’s crazy enough to give us $500,000 on the finger. We need to come up with a mortgage payment we can make each month. We need to do a lot of things and, if we’re serious, we have to be ready to move into a home before November 21st, which is when our lease on 1371 Norman Dr. is done with.
We’ve got a lot of stuff to learn about, and money to save in the next 7 weeks. Wish us luck.
