We are currently looking to buy a home in the western NJ/eastern PA area and I am so sick of looking at homes! I think that we have looked at least 40-50 homes since March and we are still in the rental! We have looked from southern NJ to northern NJ to eastern PA. Its not that we are picky, we want a 4 bed/2.5 bath with a basement for less than $400,000. We were originally wanted one with some land but that is not to be for now. We finally decided that we need to look at homes with 2 pictures in our head, the “For Now” house (as in this house is good but in 5-10 years we want to buy our Forever home) and of course the “Forever” home. We almost bought a house in PA that was the perfect size but it did not have the land we wanted. The problem was the garage floor over the basement may need to be replaced. Then there was the house that we did put a bid on, then interest rates jumped up and the house and tax payment would have been almost $3000 a month!
We are looking at another house tomorrow night, it would be the “For now” house for us. It did not take us this long the last time we bought a home in 1999.:wall:
Keep your fingers crossed!
