The one thing that no one tells you about buying a home is the extreme amount of junk mail that you will receive shortly after the purchase. I have gotten more mail addressed to me in the first month in a half then I received all last year (I wanted to give a realistic idea, but was SO tempted to give a hyperbole so you would be like – I, like, can’t believe it!). And it isn’t like the mail is all unique. I have received about six notifications from ADT. Neither are mortgage companies who want to set you up on bi-monthly payments. I have had at least four different companies solicit me, one of which has sent multiple letters and even left a note on my door. It is madness.
When you buy a home tell the lender that it is not OK to sell you information marketers. Unless you want the attention. However, I did receive a Bed Bath and Beyond discount that we used to buy a croc pot…so it kinda worked out.
