Wordless Wednesday: Finding A Home

So, I’ve been trying to find a home closer to Fred. Driving two hours every time I want to see him has just gotten so tiring and hard. I’ve been trying to find somewhere to live in MD and it’s like finding an expensive needle in a haystack.

The houses that are in my price range are about the size of a postage stamp. This one is probably the size of the garage at my old house in MN. I’m not exaggerating in the slightest. Not only that, this small house’s rent is about the same price as my 5 bdrm 2 full bath, 2000sq ft, on an acre of land home. I’d guess this house is 500 sq ft?

Anything else is astronomically priced. I’m struggling with what to do and have spent the week so far in MD with the boys while Fred is gone on business. Oh, and did I mention, school starts Tuesday? I’m weary and just want a home again.

I went and looked at this house and it’s super cute, but it’s out of my price range and would put a huge strain on my meager budget. It’s actually $200 more a month than the house above. I’ve got to make a decision in the next day, latest by Thursday. Prayers are appreciated!

House hunting is no fun at all :-( I will keep you in my prayers that the right one in your price shows up...

Isn't it crazy how different the prices are in different areas? Rent here is almost as much as the mortgages!

We were house hunting not too long ago and gave up. Then again, it wasn't urgent for us to find another home. I wish you all the best. Prayers your way.

Yes!! I have been there, Mimi. I had to take a place more than 1.5 hours form my parents because it's all that I could afford. I don't have a significant other to be close to but I think that we do what we have to do, you know?
I want my girls to have what's best for them~ a yard and space to call their own.
I'll be praying for you!

It can definitely be hard work to find the perfect home.

Danielle Harper said...

I will be praying for you! It's insane how much the cost of living can differ across the United States. I don't think I could afford to live anywhere but where I am right now.

Will definitely send some prayers your way!

God has you in His hands Mimi. He will let you know when the time is right, by placing you right in sight of the perfect house. You are doing everything right. I am sure it won't be long now! <3 you!

I think finding a home can be the most stressful thing, especially if you life is up in the air while you wait. My MIL is a real estate agent, so we have been truly blessed to have her help.

Yes, I have. It always seemed that every time I went house hunting, what I needed was just out of my budget. I hope it went well. Let us kno!
