We are and I can not even begin to explain how frustrating it is getting! My husband works construction and we move about every 1-2 years. So buying a house was never really an option. We tried a few times but could never get qualified. Now that my husband has a great job we are trying to get qualified to buy a house and we still do not qualify! We have two car payments and they have done absolutly NOTHING for our credit! Both of our scores are still less than 600 and we are almost done with both cars! It is so frustrating. We still do not even qualify for any credit cards either unless it is a secured line and still then they said it takes at least a year to get established credit with them.
Our recent landlord has been such a pain in the ass. He did not think to even mention that he was going to have a construction crew come and rip apart our entire sidewalk! I complained to the office after not being able to get ahold of my landlord by telephone and he came banging on the door the next day saying I was arguing with his construction staff! Which I was not. Let me tell you I asked them to wait on one section of the sidewalk because I needed access to my driveway and they werent even going to let me get my vehicles out! And they said it was going to take a week for the concrete work to be finished! My landlord said I should be thankful that he is "improving" not only his property but the property we lived on. WTF? Seriously I was so furious I just walked away and let my husband deal with him. He later came to me and said I needed better communication with him. WHAT? It is in our lease he is to let us know at least a day before ANY work is to be done on the property so we can prepare and we have not been given that courtesy once. (there have been several repairs that needed taken care of when we moved in.)
Moving right now is not an option. because my husband has worked here less than a year we did not get approved to rent through any realtys. Small town = less options.
I can not believe they make it so hard to buy a house. I am so fed up with trying our hardest to pay our bills and getting absolutley NOWHERE!
