This was a very interesting journey. To be honest, I expected it to be much worse. Everything went very smooth no surprises along the way. My LO was the best I could've had, she was great. My realtor was amazing as well. I'm so excited to be a homeowner, although I don't think it's really sunk in yet. Started moving but still haven't spent the night bc I'm waiting for some man muscle to come help me move the large furniture. Probably will spend the first night there tomorrow. There was a time that I thought I'd never own a home, so to any of you who feel that way.... It is possible. Good luck everyone.
