Our House, In the Middle of Our Street

Buying a house is stressful

We went to look at that little house that I found online this weekend.  I was hoping it wouldn't be as awesome as it looked.  It was.  So we brought my parents back the next day to come look at it and got their opinion.  They loved it.

And now I'm knee deep in emails to and from the realtor and the mortgage broker and Hubby and Hubby's parents and my parents.  And I love this house, but I find myself questioning if it's just perfect.  And then questioning whether anything will ever be just perfect. 

This house is awesome.  The curb appeal is precious.  The neighborhood is cozy and quiet. The kitchen is huge and new.  The living area is open.  The master bedroom is massive.  The school district is fantastic.  The price is perfect.  The backyard is undeveloped, so we can do whatever we want with it (pricey, but still a pro)But the formal dining room may be a little too small.  And although it has a fantastic view, it's on a slope over a busy street which can be difficult for resale. And the upstairs carpet is a bit dirty.

So how far do you go on the quest for the perfect home?  Do you settle for mostly perfect at a great price?  Or you sit back and keep looking until you find perfection?  And what if you never do? Pin It


  1. We are looking too and it is a total pain in the butt. I'm realizing that nothing will be just perfect....something has to give. I'm just hoping I will find that "ahhh" moment with one and that will be that.

  2. I know its so hard! I would hate to settle for something has a few flaws if there's something perfect out there, but I don't know if we can afford my concept of perfect within our price range! It's all much more of pain than I expected :)


Leave me some love. Your comments warm my heart!
