House Hunting=Draining

I've been MIA because I've been spending every waking minute thinking about houses.  Yep, that's right, we've started to look into buying a place of our own.  I thought this was going to be so exciting, and right up my alley- but it turns out me and house hunting in our area = not so good.

For starters, everything is expensive.  And I swear every time we look into something, we find another cost is added.

Secondly, it's expensive.  So, no single-family home for these three.  Which is fine, condo life will be perfect for us. But it is no House Hunters in Texas where $150K gets you a brand spanking new 4,000 sq. ft. 3 car garage house.

It takes forever.  And, I'm a get 'er done kind of gal.

Lastly, the thought of a 30 year loan is insane.  INSANE!

We've seen a few places, and really like one, but with HOA fees, and those pesky little HUGE taxes it tacks on quite a bit.

So in the mean time, send us good house hunting energy that someone puts our dream home up on the MLS who is willing to negotiate.  Oh, and cover our closing costs.


  1. Very exciting you guys are looking for a house/condo! I can't wait to hear more about your search.

  2. The best things in life usually take the most effort.


    Ha - that's such a cheesy comment. Forgive me... :)
