After the busy days Monday and Tuesday, I spent Wednesday recovering. Back at it Thursday. Had a meeting with my real estate agent. We discussed what I am looking in a house. He was going to go though listings and send me a list.
I was planning to go from there to the bank's mortgage offices. However, my real estate company has a full service mortgage division.
went down the hall and met with the mortgage broker. Went through gyrations, figuring out the best way to get a pre-approved loan. I have to forget the line of credit I was pre-approved for - it would screw up home loan approval process.
Friday and over the weekend, I spent untold hours looking at home listings. Sent a couple e-mails to the real estate agent with properties I was interested in, and questioned exactly what he was using for sort parameters.
Saturday evening, I was ready for a break. Cousin Don and I met at Billy'Long Bar for food and drink. Great visit and conversation.
Today, I met with Leland (real estate agent) and selected a few properties to inspect. The house in the photo here is the best that I was today. We look at houses smaller (and less expensive) that he had started selecting. The ones we looked at today were in the 1400 sq-ft area. While I liked what I saw, for purposes of "due diligence" I need to look at larger and more expensive houses, too. Probably another session of inspecting houses later in the week.
