We finally received word that we are pre-approved! Now with that stress down, we get to stress about our initial offer that we presented today. We know it's going to be countered, but we'll take it one step at a time.
When they say home buying stressful, they don't joke! Thank you to EVERYone for answering my silly questions through this long journey (increasing my scores, FHA and conforming loans, etc..). Hopefully soon, I can post "closing" or "closed" very soon!
