Before Jacob and I got married we tried to pre-qualify for a home loan. It didn’t pan out so we have rented ever since. A lot has changed since then. We have paid off debts, raised our credit scores, I got a full time job, we bought a car, etc. We have lived in two apartments for the last few years and while we love our current apartment we didn’t want to rent for the rest of our lives! We were considering a 3 bedroom apartment once our lease is up but it doesn’t hurt to see what options are available. Today, I called a lender and we were pre-approved for a loan and the monthly payments are actually do-able for us! Now comes the scary and fun part. Looking at houses and eventually buying one. I’m excited to start this next journey in our lives but scared about this new responsibility.
I think the best thing we can do is pray about this to make sure this is what God has planned for us.
