First blog

October 9th, 2006 at 07:10 pm

So here I am... posting my first blog EVER! I have been reading many people's blog and though I should start my own.

So here is a little background about me:
I'm a 26-year old content manager. It's one of those title you don't know what they mean, really. My boss has never been able to come up with a title for me. But anyway, I work for a small start-up company in Cambridge, MA. My dream is to be able to quit in 5 years when my husband and I have mamaged to create enough passive income that we can both quit.

We bought our first house and are getting ready to move in on Oct 27th.. YAY! I'm very excited. Real estate in Massachusetts is a little crazy but I think we got a good deal. I was affraid we would not be approved for a prime laon because of my husband's credit score. Back in May, our mortgage broker told us it would be iffy. But hey! Surprised, when she put the numbers back in a few weeks ago, we were approved for a nice 6.25% 30-yr fixed mortgage. We could not come up with the full 20% down payment, so we piggybacked. We are not paying any points. It would take almost 4 years for the points amount to breakeven and I'm not sure we won't refi by then.

    Welcome to the group! You are doing great for someone so young. It's hard to come up with 20%; I don't know anyone personally who has done it.
