I’m a proud homeowner now! Get the inside scoop on how I was able to get to this point and how I’m decorating my new place!
If you haven’t heard the news, I’m a homeowner now! At the end of August, I signed my name on a bunch of dotted lines as the sole shareholder for a co-op in Lafayette Park. After that horrendous experience I had gone through at Mapletree Apartments, this was like a breath of fresh air.
This is my first experience with investing in property, so all of the steps it took to get here and the things I learned along the way were and still are totally new to me. Luckily, I had some knowledgeable people by my side to walk me through things and answer all of my questions.
Around 3 a.m. while I was in bed, my leg started itching uncontrollably. I thought a mosquito had gotten me or that I was allergic to my new comforter, but something told me to get up to take a look at my skin. My entire right leg, literally from the top of my thigh to my ankle, was red, hot, swollen and covered in hives. I started ripping my sheets off of my bed and when I was about to take off one of my pillowcases, I saw a bug crawling around trying to get away. “Oh no,” I said to myself. It was a bed bug.
