I think it is time for our house hunting update. The condo we have waited MONTHS on finally accepted our offer. Which is great and all, but they accepted it right when we found the most awesome house EVER! And because it is a house there is no HOA to deal with and that makes the prices about the same. This house isn't in our most favorite area, but its not that bad either. If we could we would exchange the condos location for this house's location.
The neighborhood it is in is pretty cute. The house sits on nearly half an acre, 5 beds, 2 baths, 2 fireplaces, huge backyard, good storage, crown molding, 2 car garage, etc. the list goes on with how cool this place is. We really like it, but we have a pretty good chance of loosing it in a bidding war. So at this point we are happy to have a potential place to live, but we are dragging our feet on it hoping we will get this super cool house. I don't even know what I would DO with 5 bedrooms! The thoughts of not having to deal with HOA, people next to us, on top of us, parking, etc. would be so great. And to have a yard... Well, right now there is nothing I can do but wait and know that whatever happens will be what is supposed to happen.
