A little over a week ago, the house was appraised for the bank. Today my loan officer informed me that the house appraised at the sale price. I have also satisfied the underwriter’s conditions. My role now is to shop around for Hazard insurance. Which means that we are about two to three weeks away from closing. I am one step closer to buying a home. And it’s a pretty exciting yet overwhelming feeling at the same time. I am happy. This has been a goal of mine for so long that along the way there were many times that I doubted that it would come to fruition. But I am scarred as all hell.The amount of responsibility terrifies me. I truly feel that now I am a grown up.
