We actually ended up buying a house that met most but not all of our criteria. Fiance and I knew it was the one when we sat at the kitchen table with our Dunkin’s coffee and could see ourselves there for the next twenty years.

Good luck! I know how frustrating it is!

@coffeegal85: We walked in and just knew right away that it was “the one”. We had visited 4 other houses that day and I was getting so discouraged and disappointed. The other ones we would walk into and we would say “well, ok if we did this, this, and this then maybe this house would work”. Basically talking ourself into liking the house. But our current home we walked into and we just knew it. And when we were standing on the deck looking at the backyard it sealed it for us. Well, seeing the tool room/man cave sealed it for the boy ๐Ÿ˜‰

i would kill for a house so i could have a tool room for ME.  but selling the condo isn’t happening anytime soon ๐Ÿ™

don’t rush the decision–the last thing you want is to be in your new house having the same “i want to leave!” feelings you have in your apartment now.  a few months longer now will be worth it in the long run.

I waited until it was one I didn’t have 2nd thoughts on. We were in an apartment and I was SO screw this shit!LOL I was tired of not having a yard, not being about to go outside without ppl looking in my face and not being able to breathe really!

My house hunt went from December 2009 to Sept. 2010. A long journey. At least 3 offers and 2 realtors later, I found the one.

It just felt like home, as cliche as that sounds.

I feel ya! We’re so ready for a house too! We find ourselves not having enough room/space ๐Ÿ™ We were ready to put in an offer but went back to visit the house again and saw it had serious vinyl siding issues (something we didn’t see the first time). So now we’re back and square one again…and impatient ๐Ÿ™

My husband actually had to talk me into this house! And I am so glad he did. We made our list of “must haves” and “wants” and we actually found a few with all of the must haves and most of the wants. We were about 12 hours from signing on another house that I could totally see myself living in when my husband suggested that we reconsider this house. I’d dismissed it immediately because I thought it was too big (4 bedrooms and we have no plans for kids!) and I thought we’d never furnish it. He told me his vision for it and I started picturing myself in it and I just decided to trust him and “leap.” 

Really, I think as long as  a house meets your basic criteria you’ll be happy. There isn’t just ONE house you could be happy in. 

Also, it really is awesome. I was a little worried that having a house wouldn’t be ask great as I thought it was… but it totally is. Just be patient and you’ll get there soon!!

I know what you mean! We’ve lived in apartments for the last five years, and I’m so tired of living in one space. We are planning a home-build, so knowing it won’t be finished until AT LEAST the end of the year is so frustrating.
