Hubby and I have decided to start looking into buying our own home. We're tired of renting and dealing with landlords. Plus, hubby and I just want our "own" place. The other reason is because we're sick and tired of the stalker we have squatting in our landlord's property harassing and stalking and stealing our stuff. (Our landlord is aware of what's going on, he says that it's our problem and that WE need to be checking his property to make sure the guy isn't breaking into his places again).
Well, I fell in love with this house in our old town. It just says home. It needs some TLC outside (paint and the porch roof needs to be replaced but that's easy; I've replaced roofs before). But the realtor has been running us in circles! *headdesk*
My mom keeps telling us that we should just forget the house if we're having an issue talking to the actual realtor in charge of it (we keep playing phone tag, plus the guy lately has been busy showing houses). She also thinks that the house is horrible and that hubby and I should be buying a $80,000 house instead of staying in our budget. I swear.. We butt heads a lot but this.. .This has gotten me to the point where until we're done looking we aren't going to be around her and my stepdad for awhile. >.<
Has anyone gone through the process of buying a house? How long did it end up taking you to get through everything?
