Pre-Approval Pending

Many books, bloggers, websites, friends and family have told me when it come to buying a house "Take your time".  You all will be happy to know I did the exact opposite of that (just kidding sort of).  Chaz and I have been looking at homes and places to live for about a year now.  We haven't narrowed anything down because we haven't really found what we have been looking for.  We have toured a few homes, did some drive-by shopping but over all, we just haven't been impressed with any places until this last weekend.  I figure now that we like a place we better get moving.

Yesterday we were getting pay check stubs, tax returns and a bunch of other boring important information together so we could submit it for our pre-approval.  Nick, our mortgage expert, gave us a bunch of mortgage scenarios, none of which actually make sense to me but thats another story.

And now for the most important part of this post....

Everything has been submitted, Nick looked it all over and said we are good to go, now we are to the part WHERE WE WAIT!!  I know it has been less than 48 hours but it comes back to the "taking your time" aspect of buying a house, clearly I'm listening... I'm listening for my phone to ring or my email to chime to let me know it's time for the next step :-)
