After lots of consideration about the economy, our finances and careers, the baby’s nearing arrival, and other adult-ish matters, we decided that it was the right time.
So we’ve begun the exciting and complex process of searching the Los Angeles neighborhoods for a home to call our own.
It’s all quite intimidating to me. I finally had the word “escrow” defined for me, and already that was enough information to make my brain go into hibernation mode for a few hours. Thank heavens for my husband, who is highly motivated to do most of the home-buying research and work.
There are a few houses that we’ve looked at, but we’re still searching for something that really fits. It would be great to find a place that has at least three bedrooms, a front or back yard, and is near the college campus we work at.
Send us good house-hunting vibes, and hopefully I’ll soon be able to write a post titled, “Yay, We Have a House!”
