The Trials and Tribulations of Home Buying

My husband and I are currently looking to purchase a home. I'd been through this once before, with the ex, and I'd forgotten just how much I hated looking for homes then, not because of him, but because of the constant build up and subsequent let down.

We found a home that we really liked, at least from the pictures provided, and from the information it had everything we wanted. However, upon arrival, it was clear the house was in some need of repair - mostly minor - but enough to make it to my 'not a big fan' list. The second home that we went to see wasn't any better. In fact, it was worse, and went from the 'not a big fan' to 'this is surely a money pit and No. Just No!' list.

I think we're going to be in for a lot of frustration and disappointment before we can find something we really like. We're limited by our income, as well as what we want from a home. I just hope that we find something sooner than later. I'm looking forward to having a crafting space I can reliably use, so that I can continue to work on my home business.

But, for now, Meh. Just Meh. I hate shopping, even for houses.
