You heard right. We are house hunting. Well, let's say Condo/TOWNhouse hunting. We can't afford an actual house, but we are tired of renting and not building equity. Plus, we get kicked out of here in a couple months, or Robert has to take a class he doesn't need just to stay here until he is done in December. But who wants to move in the cold winter? Not I! So our goal is to be out of here before then. Especially because spending another winter in these cramped quarters is not really appealing.
We have an agent now and have met with him and are working on all the bugs of the home buying process. We have seen one place so far. The area was great, the outside beautiful- the inside, not so much. The stuff needed to be fixed, but that wasn't the issue as much as floor plan. I don't really like a closet for a second bathroom RIGHT into the kitchen, no storage or tripping over my kitchen table IN the kitchen while trying to cook. That's fine, on with the search. Surprisingly there are a few potentials in our tiny price range. And the hope is still that in a few weeks or so, the promotions we have been sweating over will finally just give us a yes or no. We keep praying and we will have to see what happens. In the mean time, the search goes on.
You don't think this is a little out of our league do you? Come on, you can't see us being able to afford it? I can totally picture us in a manor house just like this one!
