Update-Activated spouse & buying house

Hello Ladies

I just want to thank everyone for their advise.

Well, we did it. We just placed a 5% deposit on a brand new (not yet built) condo in Adams Morgan in Washington, DC. The developer had a mortage company that we spoke to and she bascially said that she can pre-approve us, but the whole loan process will go on about three months before settlement...which is in about 18 months or more. So, DH being activated is no problem, because by the time we go to a settlement, he will be back at his civilian job.

Thanks for all of your advise.

That is great. I hope you have fun picking out your colors, carpet, lights, etc. Your timing sounds perfect. New homes are fun and the wait will really make you appreciate it!
