Try not to rush things through for the baby. Hard I know, but despite all the craziness of a newborn its better than spending out on a new home you aren’t that fussed for.

Hold on tight, and your perfect dream house will be just around the corner – hopefully before the baby arrives.

Good luck! 🙂

If you want to PM me about your search area, I may have some thoughts. Mrs. BritishBroccoli is also really in the know about MD real estate for a different part of the state, so she may know something about your search area if I don’t.  

The fact is that house hunting in some parts of MD is really, really hard, unless your budget is $650k+. We had a set search area with very little housing stock to choose from in the under $500k price point.  Like you, we had to wait it out as houses in our search area very slowly trickled onto the market. It took us 18 months to find the right house at the right price with the right sellers. I know you just want to be done with it, but patience is truly your best option.

Don’t settle for a house that doesn’t meet your criteria and makes you feel meh. If you do, you’ll resent the house and mortgage payment every month, and that just sucks. But when you hold out for the right house, making that mortgage payment actually feels good, and you’ll find yourself grinning from ear to ear every day on your drive home from work. It’s so worth the wait.
