remember the house that we made an offer on and the realtor laughed at us? the guy said he was sorry to say that he even looked at our offer? well apparently he never presented the offer to the owners of the house (which i SO already knew).
well the owners found out that an offer was made and they weren't informed of it. and said owners are pissed. and the dream team (my realtors) are going to meet with them on friday. and now i feel like before i know it, i'm going to be making another offer on this house i don't even like!
so i'm torn. i mean, what if we can get this house for relatively cheap (in california real estate terms) and that makes our mortgage really affordable for us? is it worth it to live in a house you don't like? seriously? cause i'm thinking it's not. i mean, if you don't like a house, you don't like a house. right? the problem with the house isn't the paint or the carpet, or the fact that is so dated it needs tons of work. the problem is with the way certain areas are designed and the fact that the house is small. the bathrooms are weird and i loathe the master bathroom. it sucks. i feel like we would grow out of the house fairly quickly and i do not like going into something with the intention of leaving it shortly thereafter. know what i mean? i like stability. and why would i move into that house if i intend on leaving it in a year or two? i just don't know what to do. i really don't. so i guess we'll wait and see what friday brings. but what would you do? would an affordable mortgage be worth it to live in a house you truly don't like and don't want to live in???
