19 Aug Buying a home. Feeling nervous.
So I put an offer in for a house at 170~k and it was accepted ON THE CONTINGENCY that we reach a conclusion during negotiations that will occur after a home inspection. My first impression: it's up to date for the most part, but it needs a new roof and windows. Some stuff will need to be added or replaced, but nothing huge beyond that roof and windows.
So with a contingency, nothing set in stone. Still…I'm nervous. Never bought a house before. I was pre-approved for 55k more than this house, and even after negotiations the price stays 170, it's the same price I pay for rent right now.
My jobs very steady and my pay will go up for the next few years, but…it's a big step. And with the economy, never know what's going to happen.
Any of you this nervous buying a house? Whew
