So most of you know that we're doing all we can to move to Tacoma in February, yes?
We are supposed to be hearing from two more lenders this week about pre-approval and a grant program that would give us extra $$ towards our down payment, closing costs, or whatever. We are pretty sure we've picked our our realtor but want to meet with another one just to be sure. We narrowed our favorite houses from 25 to 10 to 4, most of them being in the vicinity of Fred Meyer and 6th Ave. :) We are taking a first-time home buyers class on the 28th in Parkland.
It's a crazy time in my head these days and I'm really grateful I've been exercising so much (even though I'm the weakest in my class - grrr) because otherwise no one would want to talk to me, much less comfort me when I call all stressed and anxious because I'm trying to learn about what's going on. Too many terms and numbers were floating around in my head last week.
Oh, and on a completely different subject, my in-laws have a blog about their adventures in Istanbul! You can read it here. Enjoy!
