Sorry to hear that they were both duds. I was hoping for your sake that you’d found the deal of the century! I think I’ll feel exactly the same when I purchase my first property - I’ll want to buy a property I’d be comfortable living in. As I’ve read in so many of the posts and articles here, the NEIGHBORHOOD is as important as the home itself.
You do have the advantage of having some money in which to use. I think if you keep in touch with everyone here (who are so helpful) and keep everyone updated on where you’re at in the process, you’ll do just fine. It is a little scary, I know. I’ll be scared when I try it for the first time too. But sometimes feeling scared just reminds you that you’re alive…it’s a good thing!
I, on the other hand, really need to figure out a way to purchase real estate with none of my own money out of pocket. L There’s no money there to be used! So it’ll be a bit more tricky, but I do think it’s possible.
Let’s keep in touch.
