After beginning the search for my own home in the Phoenix area, I realized that there were a lot of other people who were starting their own journey to home ownership and we could all learn from each other! The result of this realization was blawgr.com where I can add the little tidbits of knowledge that I gain as I go through this process. Please realize that everything I post on here is a bit specific to my own search for the perfect home, so some things may not be relevant to you. Hopefully, though, you’ll be able to find something useful; or add a gem of information from your own experiences!
Brad has been wonderful in also helping me to know what to focus on and look for in a house. I can’t thank them enough and I know they will help make this whole processes easier.
Like I said, my search has been in the Phoenix area but while the housing market is different all over the country, the general process and emotions you feel are constant across state lines. Even if you’re looking for a home in another city or state, feel free to look through my steps and feelings throughout this process and see if anything rings true with you as well!
