So, I’m in the process of buying my first condo. Very Stressful, yet, very exciting. It’s not something I ever thought I’d be doing on my own, but alas…..
So far, it’s been a pretty painless process, aside from dealing with my mortgage broker. He couldn’t be more unprofessional if he tried. The dude has zero bedside manner, barely returns phone calls and emails and is downright rude. Why have I stayed with him, you ask? Well, he claims he can get me this great loan, low interest rate etc. Plus, my father has done business with him before and wanted me to give him a chance. So, I agreed, but it hasn’t been easy. I should know by Tuesday if the loan was approved and if I can move forward in this loooong process. Fingers crossed!
Now a little bit about my adorable condo. It had a bunch of upgrades done, which include: hard wood floors, crown molding, recessed lighting, new paint job and a fireplace! But what I’m most excited about is the walk-in closet. For the past four years, I’ve had to make due with a closet the size of a phone booth. So, hey, I’m moving up in the world! The condo is move-in ready, so now I just need to get my loan approved and close escrow so I can move in. It’s still crazy to me that I’m 34 and buying my first condo on my own, rather than 34 and married with two kids. But, as I’m sure you will all agree, life usually doesn’t go the way we plan. For whatever reason, THIS is exactly where I’m supposed to be! J
Till Next Time,
