I am now a homeowner.

I finally closed on my house this afternoon. Now I can do whatever I want with the property and now I don't need to posse up a lot of cash. Of course, that cash is now gone, but now I can work towards building equity rather than just making a landlord rich.

Here is a picture of me at the end of closing holding a copy of the deed to the property. You'll notice a huge pile of papers on the table. I signed or initialed nearly every one.

Yeah, I'm more relieved than excited at this point, but I think I'll get excited as the summer goes on.

Congratulations! Loved the pictures of all the trees and plants you are adding.

Thanks. It feels good to own my own place, but I feel a little empty since I spent a lot of time and effort before closing.

Now I just need to save my money for home improvements.
