So the future wife and I would like to start shopping for a house. We will not be able to put money down until the spring, as my sweetheart is finishing up grad school. She has an unofficial offer at her current job. However, she’s not gotten an offer letter. Therefore, as above stated, I’m thinking spring. Despite having several months until we can make an offer, in an attempted to improve from my last house purchase, I’d like to look at many different houses. We’d like to do this because neither of us has owned a house in Wisconsin. We both would also like to better understand what we like and don’t. Therefore, the realtor will need to be patient in that a sale is still and good amount of time out. In addition, they will have to know the area well.
