Our House Hunting Trip

May 20, 2008 · 0 comments

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, we spent a long weekend in Atlanta a few weeks ago looking for a house. In addition to looking at houses, there were a number of other things we were hoping to accomplish on this trip.

We spent all day Thursday meeting with CPAs, hoping to find a firm that could support our businesses. We spent Thursday evening meeting with the mortgage broker to sign papers and prepare for if/when we found a house. We spent all day Friday with our real estate agent looking at houses (21 houses in one day!). We spent Saturday morning checking out the potential location for our upcoming wedding. And then we spent the rest of the weekend continuing our house searching.

I’ll go into more detail on subsequent posts, but here’s the quick summary:

  • We found our CPA
  • We got our mortgage papers in order and ready to go for when we find a house
  • We reserved our wedding ceremony/reception location
  • We found two houses we really liked, and put an offer on one

All in all, it was a tremendously productive weekend! More detail to come in my next few posts…
