My husband is a snob and its driving me crazy.
Ok so this is going to be a long one.....My Dh and I need to move in April. We received a notice that our apartments are not going to renew our lease (we have been here 6 years) We had a water leak and it caused mold. The apartments are saying we should have found it sooner...which is bs...it was in the bottom of my low to the ground cupboards that I don't use because DH is disabled so I don't put things in really low or really high places...anyway...we are DONE with this apartment, however a few years ago my sister stole my DH and I's personal information and opened a TON of credit cards and totally screwed our credit. My mom convinced us to not press charges and so we have been taking care of it on our own (with little help from the family) That means that it is going to get approved for a place.Two days ago I found a great house. The neighborhood and the outside looks a little rundown but, the inside is BEUATIFUL and WAY bigger than what we currently have. DH doesn't like it. The reason he doesn't like it is because the outside and the surrounding area is older and a little rundown...now i want to be really clear that it is not a bad area...I checked family watchdog.com and there are no alerts to high crime in the area. The schools are great. I feel like he is being a snob because he wants his "dream" house and we can't currently afford it or get approved for it. I don't know what to do. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this house.....it is coming available in April right when we need it and the landlord knows about our credit issues and is still willing to rent to us, he is also being super nice and says that he really wants to rent to us. DH wants to wait since we don't have to commit to anything until March. My problem is that if we pass up on this house because the landlord wants to find a renter to commit NOW...we could end up not being able to find anything....or not get approved by someone else. I don't know what to do...he doesn't seem to even want to discuss it. I may have left out some info, so feel free to ask questions if you need more info....any advice on what i should do is appreciated. Thank You!
