|Model Home viewing 2016-Love this room!!!!|
We continued searching MLS listings every day, and wondered if we would ever find the right one, let alone by our fast approaching wedding date. We were crammed in a 400 square foot studio, planning our wedding, and house hunting. Money was flying out of our bank accounts at an alarming rate and I was stressed beyond belief. We put in an offer on a nice condo. We didn't like the apartment style parking situation outside, or the high HOA fees but our options were limited. We were also nervous about the commute, but we were running out of time and like most people in California on a tight budget we'd have to take what we could get.
It was MJ's idea. "You know what? Maybe we should consider the new build." We wouldn't have to battle it out with ten other buyers. By the time we paid hefty HOA fees at a condo, or paid over asking just to get in, we might be better off. It was more than what I wanted us to spend, but I agreed. We rushed over to the new build, and made a quick decision to do another credit check by the preferred lender so we could get in on the current phase pricing.
