After a long and arduous process, we are finally homeowners! We bought “that big white house”, as we used to call it during our house-hunting phase. It’s gorgeous colonial house in one of the best places to live in the nation (as of a 2010 study. #34 is Franklin, NJ – same as Franklin Township, NJ, or Somerset, NJ).
Being first-time home-buyers, we entered into the market with almost no knowledge, and over the course of this process learned a lot about this fascinating world of home-ownership. It took every bit of courage and patience that we had, and we couldn’t be happier being done with that part! Of course, now comes the part of mortgage, property tax, and homeowner’s insurance! But we are really looking forward to starting a new life in this house, which we are going to make our home! 🙂
