The Joys of House Hunting

So, the end of March I was on a website that had a calculator to figure out what your mortgage would be on different houses. I was playing around will it to see if Jordan and I could even afford it when all of the sudden I was asked to enter some information, I did because I figured it wouldn't hurt anything. The next day I received a phone call from a mortgage agency asking if I wanted to come in and get some more information, so I did.
When I first went into the mortgage agency I didn't really think that Jordan and I would even be approved for a home because we're so young and our credit wasn't the best, or so I thought. But, when they pulled up our credit they told us that it was a lot better than I had originally thought :) And that we were pre-approved to buy a house!! I was in complete shock and I was excited beyond belief so I had to call Jordan and give him the good news! We were both so happy! :)
Then, a couple of weeks later a realtor called and asked if we were ready to start looking for a home, of course we both said yes!! We've looked at about 5 houses so far, and we are going to look at some more tomorrow :) But, I never knew how excited and stressful house hunting can be! There are so many things to consider when looking for a house that I had never even thought about! Right now we are trying to decided if we want an older, bigger home that's not as updated, or a small home that is updated, or a town house or a condo. Plus, we don't even know where we want to live yet. So, there's a lot of decisions to make but I'm sure we'll pick the right house for our family and our situation! Wish us Luck! :)
