How I did it: I tend to be one of those people who likes to take care of things herself. I'm not one to ask for help, and at times, am hesitant to even ask for advice. I realize this is not necessarily a good thing. Buying a house is not an undertaking I recommend approaching with that attitude. It is a stressful enough experience when you have people in your corner.
I wanted to buy a house by 25 but I bought my first house at 29! And my second at 34. 6 days ago
A house we both like came on the market last week Monday. It’s on a route we regularly walk with our dogs. Beautiful garden. Although we weren’t really looking to buy right now, we decided to contact the seller anyway and have a look, telling ourselves that it wouldn’t hurt to see the place.
He started showing the house on Thursday, and we were the first people to see it. We both loved it, and made an offer (which he accepted).
So the past week’s been spent filling out, scanning, e-mailing, printing, and correcting countless forms, going to the bank to get certified bank statements, phoning accountants for additional back-up documents, AGAIN scanning everything and sending it to a very ditsy b(l)ond originator (who got confused halfway through the process and filed half our paperwork in somebody else’s file…), and dealing with attorneys who don’t answer their phones before 09h30 in the morning! Seriously?!
My nerves are shot, and I suspect all of this helped fuel the horrible headaches I’ve been having most of this week. But all the paperwork is finally in, and the applications sent off to the banks. Now the waiting (and praying) starts…
I’m trying to be very philosophical about this, telling myself we’ll get the house if it was meant to be. But it’s no good… I’ll be quite devastated if, for some/any reason, we’re unable to bed down this transaction… :/2 weeks ago
