we heard from many people that the house buying process can be tough at times. i'm here to assure you: it's not that bad... at all. everything went smoothly for us. yes, if we would have opted to buy the short sale home it might have been a different story. but, buying this home was a breeze for us. luckily, we live in an area that housing is VERY affordable. if you want affordable housing just move to springfield, missouri. :)
we're still getting settled. i just felt it was necessary to paint every single room in the house.
