A young couple’s quest to buying a home

A new day, a new blog.

I decided to start this blog specifically to keep track of my experience of being a first time home buyer in Brooklyn. My boyfriend and I have been dating for four years now and decided it might be time to invest in a property together. We are both die hard Brooklynites.  I was born and raised in the Greenwood Heights section of Sunset Park. He is originally from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic but came here when he was about 4 years old. We both agree that it’s the best city in the world and are ready to put down some roots in Brooklyn!

After countless open house visits, real estate drop-in’s, scouring trulia, streeteasy and zillow ads and flooding brownstoner with every home-related question under the sun — I decided it might help to keep a journal and document the process of a young Brooklyn couple buying their first home together (and anything else that might happen along the way 🙂 )

OK, it’s a lovely Sunday in Brooklyn and we’re going to drive around to visit some open houses.

Stay tuned.

About Maya

I like words like "labyrinthian," "kerfuffle," and "serendipitous" because they're mellifluous. I love poetry, pumpkin ales, sangria, long summer days, Fall foliage, going out of my way to step on crunchy leaves in October, live music, Jazz, Salsa dancing, theater, film (foreign and indie), the arts (myriad varieties), dance (in theory and practice) and any place where I can sit outdoors and take it all in.
