Today after work, I am going to look at homes to buy with a realtor! It will be my first time ever. Before the economic downturn, there was no way to even consider buying a home b/c the homes prices were so high, here in Southern Calif, they just out of reach for me to even consider buying a home. But now that home prices have come down quite a lot, it looks now is the time to look at buying something. PLUS that $8,000 tax credit for buying a home makes it an even sweeter deal.
However, what I have notice is that the mortage rates are now climbing and they are not as many homes, in my price range, out on the market. But I have Faith in God that there will be a home out there that fits my wants and needs just for me. I am not expecting that home buying experience will be a quick process but hopefully I will find something over couple of months.
Wish me luck on my home buying journey! I am super excited to get started.
