Okay, here's the deal. Apparently we're in the "hot zone" for home buyers right now. Aka everyone and their MOM is out looking and more importantly BUYING houses at this very minute. Not only because of the 8K tax credit and low interest rate but because this is the time of year that people always buy. Didn't know that. Would have liked to know that before now.

All that to say is, I don't know if I'm cut out for the competition! Literally on Sunday when we were driving through neighborhoods and picking up the flyers from people's houses for sale, there were people right behind us doing the EXACT same thing. Ummm sorry, that's OUR house that WE'RE looking at, thank you very much.

Houses are entering and leaving the market as quickly as a day! Today a really cute house became available, and our realtor wanted us to go look at it because "it might go fast. As in, tomorrow". Ummm I'm working late tonight? So does that mean we'll miss out on the perfect house because I had to work? ARGH!

If you can tell by even the landscaping of this house, you'd see that it's definitely a must-see. We're seeing it on Thursday, but who knows... it may be gone by then.

I just don't want to rush into this whole deal. I mean technically we've only been seriously looking for 5 days now. Ummm not quite ready to sign some papers quite yet. But then I don't want to be sitting on October/November with the Dec. 1st date (for 8k tax credit) looming and feeling rushed to buy a house THEN either.

Although it may be frustrating....know that God has the perfect house for you and the perfect time to move into it. When James and I were looking, we just fell in love and were able to build our first home. Everything is in God's hands....don't stress too much and enjoy the adventure : )

If it's sold before you see it - it's not meant to be! When you find the perfect house, I'm sure you will just know instantly, and the timing will work out perfectly!

Dont feel rushed! I know its hard because Matt and I missed out on several of the "perfect" houses..but I am so glad we are where we are now! Everything works out the way it does for a reason!

Don't feel rushed. Just enjoy the process. There are thousands of houses on the market. One will be perfect! We lived with our in laws bc we ran out of time and didn't find the perfect on till later;)So could be worse!
