House hunting

22 May

mobile living?

So yesterday @trashyleesuh and I took our first step towards purchasing a home. Well kind of. We attended a home buying fair and seminar held at a local church and chatted with bank representatives, nonprofits and community organizations. We really don’t know the first thing about buying a home but the fair did answer some basic questions and gave us some starting points.

Right now we have quite a bit to do. We’ve decided to renew the lease on our current apartment for a while until we figure out exactly what we need and want. We’ll be following up with bank representatives about financing, as well as putting together some type of savings plan for a down payment and closing costs. And we’re beginning to put together lists of Pittsburgh neighborhoods where we’d like to buy.

After so many years of renting and moving around, we’re both very excited about finding a place to call our own.
