We are third-time homebuyers, looking for a house we will live in for 20-50 years. We’ve been looking for a year and a half. Our market is hotter than normal, low inventory, but not completely crazy: like 1-5 offers on good houses.
We’ve come across 4-5 houses we liked, thought seriously about, maybe even had offers accepted. But we have not been able to get through an offer and inspection period without backing out. No house will be perfect, but we keep getting hung up on, “Oh man, this place would be great if it…..” Reasons we’ve talked ourselves out of houses: -too expensive -needed too much repair -was too far from family -too much traffic noise -foundation settling issues
Well now that I have typed this all out, I see that those weren’t exactly bad reasons to reject a house. We have remodeled before and I think we can see past things we know we can change. But we just can’t find something that feels right, and I’m worried the problem is us!
People who have bought and just felt great and sure about your choice the whole time: do you exist? Tell me your experience!
