So we haven't gotten an offer from the school, but if we do, we'll most likely buy a house. I can't say it very loud because it's SCARY. We've been serial renters our entire marriage, so buying a home seems like a very big step.
Here's what I've learned so far:
-I think our piti should be less than 25%.
-Lots of houses are in foreclosure right now.
-And there are lots of other houses on the market.
-A lot of them are dumps, especially the ones that will be easy to afford.
-I don't mind a kind of fixer upper. I'm not sure about a gutter.
-Jesse and I are not in complete agreement about what kind of house we want to get.
-I don't know anything about buying a house.
So what do you know? What do you suggest? What has your home buying experience taught you that I should know?
