The OfferToday is a big day. I've just put an offer in on my first house. If they accept, I'll be moving in to my very own house in just under a month! Crazy!
I never thought of myself as someone who could or would buy a house (and truth be told I probably couldn't without my parents' generosity). But here I am today, a soon-to-be homeowner. It's a big step. It feels even bigger because I'm single. I always pictured myself doing this type of thing with someone. It's a great leap in responsibility, independence, and security--and all coming from me, providing it for myself, not waiting for someone else to give it to me.
My good housing karma continues though, I must say. I was about to make an offer on a house that I still had some reservations about when my broker brought me to this house--my house. It's perfect in every way. I walked through the rooms and as I came back into the living room I said, "This is it. Let's make an offer." It's just one of those things that you know. I know it's my house. Strange.
If you read this blog in the next day or two, please send out a little prayer. I could use something good right about now (smile).
home again, home again, jiggety jig. . .
