Buying a home was one of the most stressful things we have ever done. I gained weight, couldnt sleep, and cried all the time. On top of the stress we also had to move in with family for 6 weeks because our lease ended and i was also working on a project for work which required me to work 70-80 hours a week for about 3 months. The whole process was honestly horrible from start to finish (other than finding and falling in love with our house, that part was fun!).

But now its about 7 months later and we are settled into the house and couldnt be happier. I don’t have any good advice for you except that in the end, it WILL all be worth it. Youll have a house to call your own and you get to do anything you want to it. Just hang on a little bit longer!

Oh boy!! I know how stressful that whole process can be. We are actually looking into selling our current house and buying another one this spring. The more I look into the logistics, the more stressed I get!!

As far as your class next week and closing – the closing of my first house took less than an hour. So, hopefully you wouldn’t have to miss much time of the class. Maybe try to schedule it around your lunch break? Talk to your professor, I’m sure he/she will understand!

Concerning unpacking/repacking…just try to keep handy clothes/food that you use on daily basis. Keep a small suitcase of clothes for the week and pack the rest. As for food, keep the minimal around and maybe eat out for dinner if you can afford to.

Buying a home is one of the most stressful things you will EVER do! We had to switch lenders AFTER we signed contracts on the house… our closing got delayed 3 times (all 3 of which we were IN the lawyers office waiting). The sellers agent was horrible (so horrible the entire realty company we were using were trying to help us!) It was pure chaos and stress!

That was 9 months ago and a distant memory! We love owning our home!

I guess everyone has the same consensus, buying a house is no fun. It’s exciting at first and then it just becomes a long, dreary process. So sorry to hear that everything is happening at once. Fiance and I have been looking for houses since Aug. of 2009 and are finally closing escrow on the 19th of the month. We are so relieved and finally feeling excited about all this mess.

I’d just unpack some clothes so that you have enough until you close escrow and pack it in a suit case. Focus on school since it’s a very important week. Good luck to you! Congrats on your house!

An extra week isn’t so bad – even if you had to do a little take-out, or rewash the clothes you’ve already unpacked, it’s not so bad. It’s the same thing you’d do if you were away from home on a trip, right (except without any of the benefits of a vacation!!ugh!). Just hang in there….the super stressful delays will be over soon!
