There is something obviously wrong with me. I am coming to this forum to try and get some true help and support, so please be kind and bear with me.
We have been looking for a house now for over 7 months. Buying a house was never something we ever imagined to be possible because we didn’t have enough $ for a down payment. Now we have enough $ for the DP due to my taking a job out of stare that is offering me a hefty sign-on bonus. What a dream come true!
However, I have gone through multiple (so many that I can’t even remember the amount) of offers that we have had accepted, and when it gets to the inspection period and the house comes back with considerable problems and necessary repairs, I back out of the deal. You are allowed to cancel the contract during this inspection period and I always do….and I just don’t know why. I can’t seem to commit to any house we get an offer accepted on.
I have just lost the relationship with had with our realtor, whom I thought had become my friend. She has been looking for a house for a long time for us now, and I graciously thanked her for her efforts and truly appreciate her help. With this most recent offer, my husband did not feel comfortable with the house because it needed foundation repairs done and it had roof damage. While the seller agreed to repair these issues, my husband didn’t want to move forward with a house that had major foundation problems, even if corrected. He said, that mark stays on the house’s “record”, which obviously I know is crazy but it’s how he feels.
I am never going to be able to commit to a house, am I? I have officially run out of time. I will probably lose my job now or be forced into some shitty rental in a ghetto neighborhood ☹️
