That’s right, ladies and gents, I’m approved! Ron, my good buddy at Quicken Loans, took me from “I wonder if I could buy a house” to “You are approved to shop for homes under $LARGE SUM” in under 2 hours. Whoa.
According to my Google Spreadsheet, I’ve looked at 26 properties for rent, and I still have no where to live come the end of my lease. I’ve gotten desperate. I’ve looked at houses south of Stadium. I clicked on a link to something in NE Ann Arbor. Then, I took a deep breath and visited some For Sale By Owner websites. There, I realized I might be able to buy a condo that wouldn’t cost much more than these less-than-desirables that I’ve been seeing. So, maybe I will. Stay tuned.
