Mr. P and I, after just making one huge step together, have moved forward with yet another major life decision- home ownership! We are now under contract on a lovely 3 bedroom home- SO much more space than our apartment, and SOOOO much more attractive. Will it be pretty? Yes. Will I have fun making the space look like ours? Undoubtedly. Is the prospect of purchasing a home scary as hell? Well no shit. The economy may be turning back around, but there are still some troubles ahead, and its scary to think that we may be buying something that could end up being a major liability for us in a few years when we want to move, but at the same time, there are so many incentives for first time home buyers (thats us- yay!) right now that its almost too good to pass up. Keep your fingers crossed for us because we are doing this thing! Now lets just hope that closing goes well in a few weeks!
Go for it now. The future is promised to no one. -Wayne Dyer
