We have been looking at houses. There is SO much to buying a house! I had no idea! This is my first home purchase (the house we are currently living in my husband purchased before we met) so it is a bit overwhelming to me. FIRST you have to find a house you like (um... not really having this problem lol). THEN you have to find the lowest rate, best bank, least fees, etc. That is the part I am on right now. It is so frustrating! I HATE salesman-y people and refuse to do business with someone who isn't 'real' with me. Dear US Bank: this means you. I am currently working on getting rates from local credit unions and banks... wish me luck! Hopefully everything goes smoother after the loan part gets crossed off our list!
