Going Dream House Hunting

Aug 18, 2007
The minute I realized that I could finally afford to buy my own home, it was time to rejoice. After what seemed like decades of hard work and saving up, it was finally time to go house shopping. I know of people who look just about everywhere till they finalize the house that they are going to buy. For me, it was far simpler. We looked at a total of three houses before making a decision.

Of course, moving in immediately was not going to be an option. No matter how much I had saved up, I would still have to look to a bank to give me the money to make that purchase. With the escalating prices of real estate these days, everyone needs a little support when it comes to finally buying that house.

However, getting a loan in these loan-crazy days is not really an uphill task. Everywhere you look, there is a loan offer waiting to bump into you. They make home purchase seem as easy as ABC. My parents had always been insistent that I eventually have a place of my own. However, when they saw the speed at which I proceeded with finding the place, arranging for finance, and signing on the dotted line, I think they gawked a little. Things never used to be this easy in the old days.

I suppose, we should show a good deal of gratitude towards our friendly Internet connection. Who would have thought that technology could bring banks right to our doorsteps? But it did, and we are reaping the fruits of it.

My parents warned me about the confusion that studying about loans could cause. They told me that most loan providers try to rip you off. But that certainly was not the case with me. I found it ridiculously easy to find great offers for home loans. And while I was at it, I even read up about mortgage and home refinance. Moreover, the loan providers were very clear-cut with their fantastic offers. Every positive came with its negative, but that is to be expected.

The only problem lay in sifting through the scores of offers, in trying to finalize the best one. Once I had decided on the loan I would take, all I had to do was consult the broker, meet the owners, and purchase the house. Not quite as easy as pie, but not all that difficult either. That was my experience when buying that dream house.
