Just got pre-approved for a mortgage to buy out first home. I'm not sure if I want to celebrate that we're buying our house, or if I want to throw up at the thought of going into debt for hundreds of thousands of dollars for the next three decades.

We have three or four picked out to go look at so far.

Congratulations. Not bad timing either with low mortgage rates and somewhat lower home prices. It's a great feeling having your own home. I had a home a few years back but ended up having to sell as my job changd states and now I can't afford to buy back in.

I know you'll be mapping out the brewing and serving areas closely as you go out to view the potential homes.

Happy hunting.

Oh, every house I've looked at has had brewspace as one criteria. One of the places has a detached shop with power and heat in the back yard. Can you say BREWHAUS?!?

Congrats! I close the 24th on my first house so I know how you feel. The rates are NUTS right now. I was able to pull a brand new house for cheaper than I'm paying for rent on an apt half the size. Exciting!
