Buying a home, or even looking into buying a home was something that I didn’t think was possible. At the time my girlfriend (now wife) and I were in a small home less than 800 square feet. Our rent was $750, and I didn’t think there was any way to get into our own home. With a miracle worker at the bank and my wife pushing to make it happen, we got into a home we could afford. It was one of the best decisions we ever made.
