The Hunt to Homeownership: Our Journey, In Numbers

126 days waited for short sale approval.




42 days we were in escrow.




3 real estate agents who showed us homes.




437 emotional breakdowns, had by Stress Casey.




25 weeks waited from offer to closing.





40+ condos looked at, in over 5 cities.





3 times we were told we were going into escrow, only to have it fall apart.





2 offers put on other properties while playing the waiting game.




59 times I told Handsome Husband, "I really don't think this is going to happen."






days it's been since we've closed escrow.



That's right, y'all - our waiting paid off!
We are officially homeowners!

You’ve been through many hurdles to get to this point. It’s amazing how you kept tabs on how many frustrations and how long it took for you to finally make it. Congratulations! Though being an official homeowner is just a beginning of another journey of keeping the house in great shape at all times. I trust you’re faring well on that. Have a good day!
