I'm in the home stretch of buying a house and getting a mortgage. So far the only people I have met face to face are my agent, Natasha, a clerk from the title company and the seller. I went to a popular website, entered my housing requirements and price range, browsed for a few days, placed a request to see the houses I liked and found my agent all online. I have negotiated the price, gotten an inspection, setup homeowners insurance, tax payments and a warranty included in the mortgage payment without ever meeting the money people in person. Very 21st century. That's the good and I am happy about it. There's more, but I'll post on that later. Anyone else done this Brave New World house hunt?
