Does anyone else watch that show HGTV?
Well, that will be us in another few months, Lord willing.
Josh will graduate from B-school in early May, and we'll be off to the next adventure. After 3+ years of apartment living, we'd like to purchase a place of our own at the next stop.
But wait, didn't we JUST move in? Our time in Bloomington has FLOWN by and I can hardly believe we're already nearing the home stretch. We've loved it here.
Anyway, now that a job offer is on the table (woo hoo!) it is time for us to start the process of learning about buying a house. Josh still has at least one interview to go, so we don't know for sure about a location. However, we should have a pretty good idea by Christmas, and we may as well start to learn about the process.
And let me just take this opportunity to say thank you Lord for a job offer, especially in this economic climate. It is a huge blessing that we know has come directly from the hand of God.
So, Internet, because I know most of you 1) own homes and 2) probably learned a thing or two doing it, what advice do you have for first-timers like us? Non-negotiable features (two full bathrooms ranks very high on my list)? Financing pitfalls? Any and all advice - leave it here.
