Continuing to look for a place to buy..

Monday, September 05, 2011

want to move so bad! House hunting is frustrating..a buyers market perhaps? But..if in our modest price and size range, the competition is fierce, I am beginning to find the process amazes me that people expect you to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to purchase a home they didn't care enough about to keep in repair, clean deeply before showing, declutter, or air out. Craziness..all that says is that with that much visible neglect, worse probably lurks to be revealed during inspection. Discouraging..


Irene treated us relatively gently..

slogging rain yesterday and still falling steadily today, some pretty good wind gusts, but only a few brown power lost in our neighborhood. We re very lucky.

Househunters IRL

Friday, August 26, 2011

Much happier now that we're actually looking at homes,with pre approval, credit check etc. done and are on our way to being autonomous homeowners again. Oddly enough (or maybe it is not odd..) I find it easy to limit my eating and follow my nutritional plan now that I know our present situation is temporary. I am busy and happy working to change the real things I don't like about my world, rather than using food as a panacea for what really ails me. We're both pretty enthusiastic about having our own yard again, home projects, etc. Far too young to be in an apt twiddling our thumbs, and centered on the grandkids. We love them, want to stay local and be part of their lives, but nota daily part of their home life. We may have found our home place today..needs a bit of updating, but not more than we know how to do, and move in condition, well cared for, the right size nd with the features both DH and I wnt collectively and individually. It "feels"'s hoping!

  Contacting a realtor today to begin thesearch for a new home. Cannot wait. The stress here has about done me in...DH too. We will stay in the area, cuz we love the proximity to DC and the sunshne after years in the dim dark frigid tundra of the North country. We will have to shop carefully, because i refuse to be house poor. It will be such a relief to be on our own again!
