I'm all giddy because I am very happy.
We just realized we could afford it. Over the next 4mos we plan to completely eliminate all of SO's debt, except his car, I have no debt already so I'm in good shape.
As soon as I get my acceptance to this new University(transfer) we will have his grandpa ( A real estate agent and investor) help us with our search. We are only going to put 10% down unless we can save more than what I am estimating in such a short amount of time, but it's a start. And we should get approved for a loan, (I used to work for a broker and ppl have gotten approved making less than us, for a house much more expensive than what our range is.) We hope we can get this rolling so we can find a condo by, the latest, February of Next Year.
Any thing I need to know before buying a condo, things I should look for, etc?
I'm so excited
The number one thing to consider when buying a condo is the Home Owner's Association. What is the monthly fee? What does the fee cover? What are the rules? How do they handle violations of the rules? How are the officials elected and when? Are there monthly or regular meetings to discuss issues? Just be sure to ask these questions before making an offer.
