Last night I was looking online at homes for sale. I haven’t done that in a few weeks. Lately I’ve been focusing on our summer plans and coming to that decision with my mom. Now that we’ve signed contract on our beach getaway, I can get back to my homeowner dreams. I’ve been doing some research on loan programs available through my bank and other banks for first time homebuyers. I feel like I’m at a stand-still at this point because I have no money right now. But although I’ve been down a bit in the past few days, I’m sure as hell not out!
Last night I had a very vision-style dream. I have a lot of deja-vu in my life, real talk. So when I woke up this morning, I felt like, my dream can be realized. But it’s not the most realistic thing to think that I can have it done by the summer. That would be absolutely amazing if by some miracle we received a windfall and were able to do so. Realistically tho, I don’t find it impossible to move before the end of the year. I have this very strong gut feeling that the holidays this year will not be in our present home. It will be in our new house. Now I can’t say if it will be a one story or a two story yet. It wouldn’t make sense to assume it’s anything that I’m looking at now! lol But I have a pretty strong inkling. I can’t explain it, it’s just a gut feeling I have. I can’t say if it will be garland on the banister, a display on the mantle, outdoor decor, but I know that it will be in a different home. Like this beautiful holiday setting for an example:
I think that taking a few more months can make a difference for us. I’m also believing that I will have a job transition this year, praying for it to be in the first half of the year. But not only for the purpose of job satisfaction but for a pay increase. In the meantime, the bonuses I can get with my current position, my goal is to maximize those. Step up my job performance so that I can get the highest bonus and that’s more money that goes towards buying a house.
I’m really determined!! So my dream may be deferred but it will happen! I’m going to print a picture of the type of house I’m leaning towards and put it on my vision board. Wanna see? Here I’ll show ya! lol I am focusing on two main types of homes: a townhome or a duplex.
This particular example, there are plenty of on the market now. My preferred area costs are a little higher for this style, this particular one is located still in an okay area, it’s just a tad closer than I would like to my in-laws! lol No offense! Below is my dream townhome, in my preferred area…difference in price is more than $30K!! Eeek!
I like stairs, for some reason I feel like you get more space out of a two-story home. But I’m also open to a duplex. Here’s an example:
These are just a few of the ideas of the types of homes I’m interested in. Want to see more?
For now I’m not going to look at houses online for a while. My focus is on saving. I’m gonna print out a pic, post it up and let it be. Stay tuned for my posts that show how I’m achieving my savings goals! I can’t wait to see how my savings grow!
