House Hunting Stinks

February 15, 2013

Hubs and I have been looking for a house off and on since we got married (taking a break in China, of course). We have a small budget and big plans. I’ve never wanted this blog to turn into a “life is happy and perfect and wonderful, let me show you how!” mom blog, so I’m about to get real.

Every time the Hubs and I look at house listings, we fight.

It got so bad we had to compromise. Hubs and I are prone to drastic compromises, and this is no exception. I resigned from house hunting. I’m done. I’m done getting attached to houses that we have to walk away from. I’m done looking at beautiful online listings only to click the map and find they are too far away from everything. I’m done wishing we had a bigger budget. I’m done.

From now on, Hubs looks at listings, Hubs decides what houses to go see, Hubs goes and sees them. Alone. If he finds something he thinks I’ll like, then I’ll go see it with him when he goes back the second time. If we both like it, he’ll make an offer (he’s the budget man anyway). We don’t know if this will make it better or worse, but we’re going to try it anyway.

Wish us luck, he’s going looking with our realtor friend on Monday.
