wanna’ buy a house?

we’re moving … again!

it’s only been about four months since we moved back into the house i own in the ‘burbs. mini-me and i lived there for about six years before i rented it out and moved to get her into a better school district for middle and high school. but after she opted to go to a not-so-restricted-by-district high school our options opened up and we moved back to have more room for the addition of the trainer and his dogs. but we’ve very quickly come to hate it. cookie cutter subdivision living and suburbia mentality. bitchy neighbors and HOA bullshit. it’s not us. at all. and we want out.

last week for shits and giggles we decided to explore and just see if we could find something we liked, in the hood we want, in our price range. and go figure the first house we saw, we loved. but of course making an offer is contingent on getting an offer on mine since i need the equity in it for the down payment on something new.

we are going to start by listing for sale by owner to try and save on commission so that means cleaning, organizing, staging and photo shooting on my own. add that on top of a high-demand job that currently includes after-hours work in an online harvard certification course, 100 mile race training, teenage parenting and four dogs! and due to some staff changes in the trainer’s company he’s been mostly living and working hands-on back at the facility an hour south so it’s all on me! um yeah. if i’m not insane already i’m sure bound to be there soon!

then this morning they dropped the price on the house we want. i knew they would at some point. their realtor told ours they knew it was priced high which we hoped would buy us some time but looks like time is running out! hopefully we’ll be listed by tomorrow and with any luck we’ll get an offer quickly. current average time on market in my hood is 20 days so we’ve got a chance at making this work. cross your fingers for us!
