Today I have some exciting news! I've been meaning to write this for some time now, but the Edmunds bought their first house!!!!!!

Yes yes it's true! I've talked recently about decorating our new place, and I'm excited to announce that we actually own our place. 

Todd and I have been married for almost 8 years, and with living in 4 states we have always rented. Since we have been transitional for the majority of our marriage renting always seemed like the best option. When we found out that we were moving to Pennsylvania we knew that we wanted to buy our first home.

We came to Pennsylvania back in March to do a little house hunting for three days. I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't the most pleasant person to be around during that trip because A) I was upset in taking the necessary steps to move from my beloved Texas to Pennsylvania, and B) the majority of the places we saw were old and run down. Since we couldn't find any homes that fit our needs we then started to look into finding rentals. Weirdly enough, there isn't many homes to rent in the areas we were looking at. 

As we were coming to the end of our home search we then came across a townhouse in Lewisburg. The townhouse was up to date, open, clean, and within 30 minutes of the hospital. It is two stories with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 3 full closets, garage, and feels very open. When we got back to Texas we started to consider our options in Pennsylvania, and we both agreed that the Lewisburg townhouse seemed like the best fit for our little family. 

Once we decided that we wanted to purchase the townhouse we then had to consider our options on how to pay for it. Even though Todd is a doctor he isn't making the "doctor money" yet since he is in his residency. We've never been good at saving money, and had no money to put as a down deposit. Luckily Todd's doctor status got us qualified for a Doctor mortgage loan.  For our loan we didn't have to put down a deposit, and have a fixed rate for 5 years. The doctor loan was such such a god send because buying this house is going to set us up for success once we move in 4 years. Once we sell our Lewisburg home we will have money to put toward our next place. 

Back in April we put in our offer, and closed in June. It's almost been a month since we've moved in, and it's already starting to feel like an actual home.
