So it's been some time since my last post and there's much to discuss! I contacted the husband of an old friend who happens to be a real estate agent and hopefully, he can help me with my search for a new home. I always said that when I buy a house, I'd want to work with someone I know and can trust! It's a good thing I started this process early because I would be going crazy if I had to do all of this last minute.
Next week I begin the 3-day Workshops at Neighbors Helping Neighbors. It's supposed to be far more intense than the other workshop I attended last year; budgeting, planning for emergencies, avoiding foreclosure, etc... I am really looking forward to it and all the suggestions they can provide. I am also looking forward to the government grants and assistance programs I'll qualify for!
Lastly, I am at around 75% of my savings goal. The end so close I can taste it!
Wish me luck next week y'all!
