My biggest commitment yet

I mentioned last month that I've decided to buy a house.  Well, I spent my weekend looking at refrigerators, sofas, and packing because I CLOSE IN 3 WEEKS!  I wasn't expecting it to happen this quickly, but it has.

One Thursday after work, my mom and I drove around "window shopping" at some of the houses/townhouses that I liked online.  It's surprising how many real estate agents, don't call interested buyers back.  This is how I found my agent.  He was and is the only agent to call me back!  I loved that he changed his voicemail daily to let you know his schedule.  We met Saturday afternoon to discuss what I was looking for and shortly there after I fell in love with my first place!

That's right I saw it and immediately fell in love with the first place I stepped foot into!  Now, I did look at another place for comparison but it didn't really compare.  Did I mention that just 45 minutes earlier I let my agent, Dan, know that I am probably the most commitment phobic person he will ever meet?  I had to eat my words, because I desperately wanted the house.

After a few rounds of negotiating, a successful inspection, and appraisal I should be a homeowner by the end of the month!

Here's a sneak peak of my soon to be First Place!
