Welcome to the online chronicle of Michael and Shannon’s first home purchase. I thought this would be a good way to keep our families and friends apprised of the status of the construction, and share our experiences along the way. Buying a home is the biggest financial purchase most of us ever make. Those of you who’ve been through it can probably understand that I am filled with equal parts excitement and terror. Excited that we will finally have a place to call our own. Terrified with the prospect of having to defend my credit rating, and spending the next few months sparring with the mortgage company.
As soon as I have a chance, I want to backtrack a bit, and write about how this whole thing started. Shannon and I toured close to twenty existing properties before making a decision to build a new house with Dominion Homes in Northeast Columbus. Stay tuned for this story, and may others, along with pictures and links to other homebuying Websites.
