Wrap it up

hello, I have not been here for a while I have been sulking and whining. I thought I would spare you that. We put an offer on a house; it offended them, really! So they decided to go ahead with another buyer and a lease purchase deal. Then we had to start looking all over again. We had a glimmer of hope when the people from the other house we really wanted agreed to make the changes FHA wanted and lower the price a little. Bottom line they did not agree with the FHA appraiser and backed out. So for the last few days we have been driving around looking at houses AGAIN!

We had a nice break last night going to my hubbys Christmas Party at the Hilton in Downtown Columbus, nice place. No contential breakfast like the cheaper hotels, guess thats how they make their money, just sayin. The room was amazing but reminded me of a cruise ship where whatever you touch cost money, extra money. We did have a great time, we ate, we hung out with friends and finally slept good and that is what it is all about.

Today we went to look at two more houses with the realtor. One we really liked till we got inside! Lots of clutter weird floor plan. The other is a split entry which I said I would never buy because a certain aunt has a house like that and somehow although I never see them I would be copying them which believe me I am NOT!! Anyhow, it is a maarvelous house and beautifully decorated, (nothing like theirs). We are making an offer and hoping, praying this is the one and everything goes through this time! So maybe we will have a great Christmas present!

Hoping that you find the perfect house. House hunting is so stressful, and in this market so many sellers are totally unrealistic. Good luck.
