this home buying stuff is a freaking NIGHTMARE. why didn't any of you tell me that?!?!? it's kind of a pain. copy this. copy that. bring that in. drive here. attend this meeting. get naked.
i think we like a house. well, boyfriend really likes it and i just think it's okay. i love the neighborhood and all the other houses on the street. there is a small park at the end of the block. it really is a super cute area. but the house itself is just eh. it needs a lot of updating on the inside. it also needs a lot of work in the backyard. the thing is, none of these things are cheap updates.
so once you buy a house, how do you ever have the money to make the updates you want to make to it? where does that money come from? i just don't get it. and i don't want to live in a house that looks like shit because we got a "good deal" on it. i do think it would be smart to get this house, but i don't want to have to live in it if it looks the way it does currently. and i have a problem with waiting to update things, because then i feel like we'll never do it. we can say we will update things when we have the money, but what if we never have the money? i mean, life happens and you buy things, or have kids, and the money just isn't there. i totally feel like we should update immediately, or we won't do it. am i wrong? realistically, am i totally not seeing this accurately?!?
