I know how you feel.  I hate hate hate renting and I want to get a new house!  But practically, we can’t until we sell our other house and get my interitance from my grandmother in 2 years.  So I have to wait.

The best site that I used was realtor.com  It is the official site of realtors and links directly to the MLS.  Sometimes realtors will only load 4 or so pictures to the MLS but have more on their site.  I also liked it because it tells you what realtor each house is listed in and you can call them directly.  It also has a lot of search features (we wanted something over 1/2 an acre so we could have privacy) and has a great map tool.

I didn’t think going from the cost of my expensive apartment to a house would be that bad.  I was paying $750 for like 750 sq ft and now I pay about $1,100 for 2,200 sq ft.  I love my house but in addition to the monthly expense of the mortgage, there seems to be SOO many other costs.  Sometimes I miss the feeling that we could up and move if we had to, or we could go on vacation without worrying about our AC breaking etc.

@Melissa: I know!  Our home is rented right now.  Part of me hates that too.  Every day it feels further and further away from owning a home.

I know what you are going through! Back when we were dating we lived in apartment for over 2 yrs. It was fine for us and we always talked about if we would buy or build but we were getting so crammped and neighbors were always an issue! I was always worried about the money aspect and honestly never thought I could own my own home, weird I know, but no one else in my family did and at the time had a large amount of student loan debt. We talked really heavy about a month before we got engaged to which I had no idea was even coming. The weekend we got engaged we actually had an appointment with the builder that finally did our home to only “look” but the fever hit bad then bc I fell in love with a home and then wouldn’t you know, when we got home, there were 5 police cars and swat in our parking lot doing a drug bust? Yep we signed the contract 3 days later!

We had the fever and we bought a house last year 🙂

I love our house, but I worry about the future. I have realized that we may consider moving out of our current city in the future. I hope we can sell our place if that times comes. I really do love having our own home and backyard though 🙂
