Five years at home

Sunday was the 5th anniversary of moving into my home. I have to say I never thought I would own a home. But my rent just kept going up and up and up. That made it necessary to think of other options. That option was of course to buy a house.

I got my credit situation in order. I canceled the extra credit cards that I had around. I totaled up the amount I could have charged if I had maxed out my cards and it was over $70,000. I got my credit score which was 804. And that is a very very high score.

My realtor said he'd never had a client with such a high score. I also got myself one incredible realtor. It took us six months but I finally found my house.

The contract was accepted on my dad's birthday. There was a contingency which was the owner of the house had to find a place to move before I could move in. That was finalized on my mom and brother's birthday. So this was meant to be my house.

So Happy 5th Anniversary house.

Congratulations! Sure, home ownership has its pains (expenses, work to be done, etc.) but I still think it's worth it. So, well done you! Happy anniversary to you and the house.
