We recently purchased a new home and we decided to move and were under contract on a new place in ten days. It also happened to be during a time when my wife was in NYC for two straight weeks followed by a few days in Salt Lake City. So other than a few mortgage documents I had power of attorney and signed just about everything. Going through the process I am not sure why my name was even on the house. I HAVE NO INDIVIDUAL INCOME! For once in our lives a major creditor could care less about what I do. Though I have a W2 from the previous year it wasn't even needed. It's hard to describe how it made me feel. A little nervous, a little scared. But it definitely felt like a reality check.
