BMO Harris Bank Scavenger Hunt Sweepstakes Week 3

Purchasing our first home was sort of a fluke. We hadn’t been saving, but decided it was time to start. Just to get an idea of what the market was like we spent the day with a realtor. During our tour we found bits and pieces of homes we liked, but mostly we found run down houses that we couldn’t see ourselves living in. We had almost decided that we needed to bump up our spending range when we walked into “the” house. It was move in ready, had a fabulous kitchen, three bedrooms (we only had one child at the time)… and we freaked out. We had to have it. Monthly payments were in the range we were already paying for rent, but unfortunately we had very little down payment money. Fortunately we had a great bank (and a fabulous grandma that “gifted” us what we needed). The process was a little stressful, but the end result was blissful.

  1. Buying our three homes was stressful. However, the last time that we refinanced our current home went really smooth.

  2. We had such a great experience buying our house. We only looked at two, and bought the second one we looked at. At $45,000 for a house on 5 acres, a VA loan with zero down payment and a fantastic interest rate, it was just like a dream come true for us. Very easy, but yes, the paperwork was a a nightmare.
