Lol. We had the exact same feelings when we started. We are obsessed with HGTV and House Hunters and had NO idea that buying a house would be months of stress and tears. It’s brutal. But in the end, when you get to come home to your house which you OWN, it’s totally worth it 🙂

Good luck!

Awww I’m sorry.  Yea it is really tough and not as simple or fun as the shows make it seem.  I think the only simple part was having that “gut” feeling knowing if the house was right or not.

I know on TV it’s like, “Which one do you like best out of these amazing choices?” And poof, they have a home suddenly!

We just submitted a bid on an apartment on Monday (well technically yesterday since the sellers broker didn’t like our original format and we had to scramble to change it around) so I hear where you are coming from. It turns out it’s an estate sale which complicates things further, the seller can’t make an easy yes or no decision. And they keep coming back to us with questions, which I guess is a good thing ultimately since they wouldn’t be doing that if we weren’t in the running (there are other bids out on the apartment currently).

Surprisingly though, I don’t feel very stressed out about it. I can’t really explain why. I do love the place and see us living there long term, but I’m also very well aware that there are so many other ‘fish in the sea’ so to speak so if it falls through then I kind of feel like it wasn’t meant to be. We weren’t ever dead set on any particular building or neighborhood, so it’s not like I’ve been waiting for years for a unit like this to open up we just kind of stumbled across it.
