hey KYe. sorry to hear of the frustration. and, i don't really have any answers that you haven't considered. after two years, i could understand why you are tired of looking. it's exhausting. but, on the other hand, as you have mentioned, this may be the house you grow old in....so, it is good to find the right one. with that said, is it possible to find a short-term solution? i.e. a place that might be desirable that you get a good deal on. that you could potentially flip when your dream home comes along? two potential problems with that though
1) i do not know what the market is like out there. i know around here, i bought my house about 5 years ago now, and i could probably break even at this point.
2) it could add another degree of difficulty. i.e. what if your dream house becomes available, but you can't sell your temp solution in time, and it slips away?
it's a dilemma for sure. i know some folks around here look to buy a duplex. then, they can rent out one half while living in the other. saves them on mortgage costs while they still try to find that "perfect" place.
i'm sure this is all stuff you've thought about. but, you got me hooked in. and you know me...i like to talk.
oh...and btw...nice pic!
