John and I bought our first house in August 2011. It’s a condo about 5 miles from the center of Boston. Owning our own home was a dream of ours for a long time and we made it happen! Our search didn’t take long once we narrowed down exactly what it was that we wanted (a condo/townhouse, in the city, newly renovated).
Read my post on First Time Home Buying: Why Buy? to learn about our experiences, read my advice on searching for your first home, and the facts of buying vs. renting.
You can also follow our adventures as homeowners, our projects, and home improvements right here on my blog. I’m always tackling some kind of project!
