Buying a Foreclosure...Our Story

9:18 PM

When my husband and I were engaged, we immediately began looking for a house. I lived with my parents until we were married and he had an apartment, which was way too small for us to be in together. I remember very vividly him calling me to tell me about this house and that house and how exciting it was to go to open houses every Saturday. There were sure alot of homes for sale then! One day, he called me and told me about a house that he thought I would really like. The reason was because it was only 2 minutes from our church, was only about 5-8 minutes from my work and just 30 minutes from his work place. I was immediately interested.

We scheduled a showing and come to find out, the house was vacant because it was a foreclosure. It was currently bank owned and apparently, had been on the market for some time. Hubby-to-be and I went to the house on the day of the showing and peeked into the windows. It was such a cute house!!! Soooo cozy, hardwood floors, tasteful wall paper in the living room and a HUGE picture window! I grew up in a house with a picture window and wanted one in my own home one day...this was sooo perfect! Our agent came (we weren't working with a bankruptcy attorney Las Vegas) and we took a walk through the house. I knew right away that this was going to be a wonderful home for us. There were so many things we loved, including the spacious back yard, rose bushes and quiet neighborhood.

We put our offer in and it was accepted! Just two months after our first showing, we had closed on our very first home. It felt so good to be able to get into the house and clean it, furnish it and make it into our home. I officially moved in when hubby and I were married and just LOVED our cozy little home. What a perfect start to our life.

  1. It is always great to purchase a house - whether a foreclosed house or a new house. Anyways, you need to ensure that you will be able to repay the loan that you have taken out to purchase the house.
