We are trying to buy a house. We don't have just tons of money laying around so it has taken quite sometime to find something that we like, that is in decent shape, in a good neighborhood/area, and that WE CAN AFFORD. Well, much to our surprise, we found one this past week kinda out of the blue. We absolutely LOVE IT, it needs very little work, and it is very much in our meager price range. We have an offer in on it now so hopefully we will hear back today from our realtor.
The unfortunate thing is that we happen to live in an apartment complex with the STRICTEST "BREAKING LEASE" POLICY EVER. It will actually be cheaper for us to just finish out our lease and pay both rent and mortgage for Sept and Oct than to break our lease. That boggles my mind. But anyway -- that is what is going on with me. It is what is consuming my mind.
Right now we are playing the "waiting game" and I am quite possibly the worst "waiter" ever so I'm pretty sure I am already driving my husband and friends crazy. Sorry bout that guys. Hopefully it will all be over soon and we'll have a house.
So while you are thinking about it, please pray that everything works out and we get the house (however selfish that might be - I'm still praying it) and that I'm able to be patient without losing all of my hair.
Thanks friends -- y'all are the best!
