I took the first step in the actual pursuit of a home. Elise and I have been doing a lot of research and consulting with family, friends, Fannie Mae and the credit union. I e-mailed Della, a realtor who happens to be a third degree black belt and my instructor’s wife and gave her our criteria. She said she’s going to start looking for us.
Since Elise started working, we’ve been putting her earnings into a secondary savings account that I setup specifically for the purchase of a house. I’m sure that once Della starts sending us information on houses, we’ll become more motivated to save more and to save it faster!
