It took me and my wife almost 100 days to close. Had some hurdles to overcome but we got our dream house. Only 197k 4 bedrooms 1 1/2 bathroom, giant living room and kitchen. All new roof and carpets. House was pre 1900s but looks almost new. Fresh paints and appliances. It was an fha loan. Inspector and appraiser had nothing to say and they were surprised with the condition of the house. Also 1.6 acres. At 24 i am content with how long this took for the pay off. Last few months were nerve wracking to say the least. Now i can just sit back on my porch and look at the massive river across my house and not be stuck in the city. House is in the Sprague Connecticut area. Couldn’t be happier. Learned a lot from this subreddit and it helped me stay calm and understand the process. Good luck to anyone else going through the home buying process right now. You got this!
