Impostor Syndrome - Homebuying Version

I put in an offer on a house and am now waiting for a response from the seller. Every step of the way (when meeting with the realtor, when talking to my mortgage broker, when telling my parents and friends what I was planning to do) I have been expecting someone to tell me I am not adult enough to do this. But no one has. And it’s freaking me out because it means I am probably going to become a homeowner. I am in my 30s with a good, stable job, and yet that seems like such an adult thing that I am clearly unprepared for. Despite the fact that my mortgage will be less than my current rent.

Where’s the catch and when is someone going to pop out and say “just kidding, no house for you!!”??
