It's been quite a while since I last posted. One might assume that I was super-busy; nothing could be farther from the truth. I am home all morning long, and could post then, but the inspiration hasn't struck in a long time. This is partly because nothing is going on, but mostly due to laziness. :)
However, something big did happen to the hubs and I this weekend--we got pre-approved for a mortgage! We're very excited. We are going with an FHA loan and looking at homes in the southwest metro area. We're especially interested in homes that fall under the generous Hennepin County loan program. The program gives loans to homeowners who buy bank-owned homes in certain cities--between $10,000 and $30,000! There is also a $25,000 renovation loan that is available through Hennepin County.
So, to keep you all clued into the process, I'm going to post a daily "house of interest" and see what you all think! See above for the first home.
