We looked at a house this early afternoon that was amazingly huge and amazingly far away – for just a bit more than our base planning budget, we could afford a nearly 4000 square foot house – in Kent. As it happened, the home actually is within eyeshot of Greg’s parents’ house. We also have two pre-approvals in hand, with each lender noting that we could qualify for significantly larger loan amounts if we wanted. For now, we’re keeping it small and sane, though.
