It shouldn’t be a secret for too many of you. After nearly a year of marriage and our desire to wait as long as possible to purchase a house, my wife and I are now actively searching for our first home. We have toured over a dozen houses within the last two weeks and we have not found one that we like enough yet to make the plunge. It may be another three years before we find one that checks all of our boxes at this rate. This will be a long process and I’ll have a lot of different topics to write about along this journey. So today, I wanted to write about my recent process for finding the perfect mortgage and finally getting our pre-approval.
