We are looking to by a 2md home. Our realtor has been sending us houses for the past year. We agreed that after the wedding, we would actually go and physically look at houses. Since we been looking at houses, I haven’t found any that really Wowed me. Some are nicebut needs work here and there. And that’s ok. As long as it doesn’t need a lot because we are not handy people. Anywho. Yesterday we saw a house that was absolutely amazing. The house was completely renovated 100%. Everything is just breath taking. So modern. Just gorgeous. So do we get it? Or wait it out and see what else comes along? I doubt we will see many houses that are this modern that won’t need a lot of work. The house had only been on the market for a couple days and I feel like if we don’t get it, we will regret it later on and settle for something less.

If it’s within budget and you have that strong of a feeling for it then I say go with your gut.

If it’s within your budget, go for it! But don’t get to attached until the inspection comes through and you carefully consider all factors, location, what’s its like in that neighborhood at all times of day, schools, etc.

You were waiting until after the wedding- it’s after the wedding.
I don’t know PA’s market, but in MD there is something wrong with a house if it’s a gorgy house with no offers after a week. Make sure that the owners aren’t under water, crime in the area is low, mold in the basement, etc. thankfully inspection and appraisal will clear up most of those concerns, but it can’t hurt to do some research.

@kerens we’ve done our research as far as location, crime and schooling a long time ago. So that’s notreally an issue. I just didn’t think I would fall in love with a house so quickly.

@MrsBroccoli: the house hasn’t even been up for a week. The owners of the house donlt live there. It looks like they brought the house as an investment. The house is completely renovated from top 2 bottom. Of course we would still get aninspection. Oh and I wouldn’t even consider living any where withhigh crime lol

If you find a house you are interested in, it meets all of your needs and most of your wants, and its within budget, go for it. So what if you haven’t seen lots of houses? Whatever is meant to be will be. Think on it for a day or two, schedule a second showing, and go from there.

I think if you don’t at least try and go for it you’re going to regret it. If you don’t get it, you don’t get it. At least you made the effort.

I don’t think there should be a time limit on finding a house you love. The first house we looked at we ended up buying, but not before looking at many more houses before we made our final decision. It was meant to be 🙂

Doesn’t seem like there are any downsides here. I’d go for it!
