I guess that I can officially go on record as saying that Mr. Houseful and I are looking to buy a house. Currently we live in the heart of the city, and while I am in total love with the location and our SPACE in the house that we are in, it’s not ours, and it has no other levels but one. No backyard, no garage (and I REALLY despise the parking situation outside of my house that I probably mention it weekly on Facebook – yeah, I do.) nothing for the littles to be able to run freely in.
In this journey, we’ve had to go through some steps to assure that when we do put in a bid for something that we find, that we’re getting the most bang for our buck AND not creating a huge issue with debt (good/bad) in the process. So, we started the process of getting our credit in check, and making sure that we are putting things in place to make this time in our life as easy and financially sound as possible.
Another thing that we’ve put on our to do list is to watch my friends over at Chicagonista Live, the social talk show of Chicago, as they share a series called GPS To Your True Wealth. Given that they have their finger on the pulse of all things Chicago, including financial wealth, I’m pretty interested and excited.
