Today's the day my condo closes!
I dropped off the down payment and claimed my keys this morning.
I'm officially a property owner!!
My new keys!
What a journey. There were literally two or three steps I had to take every week for the past several weeks. A very exhausting, overwhelming, and frustrating process--but totally worth it in the end.
Thankfully my real estate agent was there every step of the way. His referrals (attorney, lender, insurance agent) helped me as well. They became part of my team, instructing me what to do week after week. I truly couldn't have done it without them.
Thanks to them, my monthly expenses will now go towards something I'll eventually own outright instead of paying a landlord.
A place I can be proud of and enjoy for years to come.
I feel very accomplished and excited and powerful in this moment.
Go, Dean, go!!
