Those of you who have been following the drama of the move know the biggest thing for us is buying a house. I've put a kibosh on any new credit cards, had everything on auto pay and have been watching our credit like a hawk the last couple years. Even with all that, I wasn't 100% sure we'd get approved. You read the news articles, you hear only perfect credit gets a loan! Well, bitches, I'm here to tell you that just.isn't. true. How do I know?
We got pre-approved by not one, but TWO, TWO, places!! VA loan, no down payment, and even a decent rate! YAYAYAYAYAY!
So now the house-hunting begins for real. I've already been in contact with my friend Zach, who's going to be our buyer's agent. We have a plan in place for finding the best house for us. I'm just hoping the houses we're looking at don't sell before we get a chance to put an offer in!
I feel 1,000 lbs lighter. Now I need to shovel out this place, but I can do that. The hard part is done!
