You will never guess what i have gone and done. I bought i house! I can't believe it. I will tell you all the story. It was a brisk sunday (as in two days ago sunday) morning when my mother and step father asked me to help them take a load of stuff up to my moms new house (she just transferred work and moved about 2 hours north of where we live now). I said yes due to the fact that i had nothing better to do and off we went. we did what we had to do to get my moms stuff unloaded in the new town and as we were getting ready to head back home, we saw this house for sale. It was a nice little house, but it had some serious potential. On the drive home my step dad said "hey you should buy that house" then i chuckled a little bit and fell asleep for about 10 min. then when i woke up he said "i was serious you should buy that house" Now before i go on, perhaps I will give you all a little back story. I am 20 years old, i have a bit of money saved, but nothing to serious. I am living in a small appartment in calgary, and have a good job that i like. Knowing that maybe it will help you realize how odd of a choice this actually was. So anyways, the rest of the ride home we sat there figuring out the finances and stuff, and all looked well, so when i got home i called the realtor and made an offer, the next morning he called me back and said my offer was accepted. So i made an appointment at the bank for tuesday (as in today). then when i went, we went through all my money stuff and made the mortagage application, about 5 minuits later the banker said "ok it has been accepted, now we just apply to CMHC and you are good to go" so we did, and within an hour it was approved and i had bought i house. So now I am sitting here, two days later still living in a small appartment in calgary, a rather large loan to pay, a job i still like and don't want to leave, and a house sitting 2 hours away. But i am happy about it all and am confident everything will work out great. If you have read this far, well than thanks for the attention. i simply had to let the world know this random and very strange bit of personal news.
