First off, we are moving to a city that is about an hour away from where we live now.
The most important thing about the house we buy is which schools are nearby and all three (Elementary, Middle School and High School) are important and must have good ratings. Although nither of my kids are currently in High School, someday they will be and we plan to live in this house for the next 10+ years.
A few weeks ago we put an offer on a house, first off, the selling reltor, we later found out is clearly incompitent.They excpted the offer and then we found out there was a lis pendens (a lawsuite pending on the title of the house) and the house could not even be sold until it was over... MY BIGEST QUESTION IS WHY WHS IT EVEN ON THE MARKET? We were angry, our realtor was angry, the selling realtor claims she didn't know, like I said, incompitent. Thankfuly we were able to cancel our offer without any repricussions. Back to the drawing bord we go, more house hunting....
Searching for a house is exausting... Not only physically tiresome when you look at 7 houses in a day, not to mention its been hot lately so I'm sweating throughout the day and most of the house are vacant so no AC is running... Also it is mentaly draining as well. Like I said, more gray hairs... UGH!!!
