I will now bless you with the same words of wisdom we received from our realtor......

"You are now in more debt, than you have ever been in your life."

Besides that...CONGRATULATIONS!

Congratulations! It sure beats paying rent. Wallpaper and paint are superficial and easily changed. Some landscaping is good while others are manhour intensive to maintain. The real downside is that there is always something to do, fix, clean, or replace. But at the end of the day, it's a great feeling to go to your home!

Congratulations! And no matter which home you chose, you'll putter around and make it perfect. The cosmetic things are easy to change. And the satisfaction of seeing YOU in your home is undescribable.

Good luck with the moving. That's the worst part.....

Actually, this is a good way to buy a house. Moving in and getting settled will make it yours. You'll get used to where you are and familiar with the neighborhood and it will be hard to think of living elsewhere.

Congratulations! And I hope the rest of the paperwork and moving goes smoothly.

Congratulations, Sarah. Trust me, there is nothing like owning your own home.

Congrats! I honestly think I could devote an entire blog to being a homeowner...you will find that it's always something. (and when it gets frustrating, because it will, you'll need to remind yourself that owning is STILL better than renting...) Somedays, I look back at apartment life and think, "Just what did I do with all of my time?" Now we're constantly looking around the house trying to think of improvements to make that will mean something in a year...oh the military life...like living in an episode of "Flip that House." Lol...
