House Hunting

As I mentioned in a previous post, a lot of my spare time has been used up frantically searching for a house for my family.  I say frantically because up until a couple of weeks ago we weren’t going to need a house until the beginning of 2017.  Now that my wife found out that she likes Illinois she is ready to move before the baby comes in September and since she is back in Kentucky for awhile, that means that I get to search for houses as well as go to work and do all my course work for school.

Now I’m not complaining here because I enjoy looking at houses that way I can be sure we get a place that fits our needs, but just letting everyone know how crazy my life is at the moment.  In the last few days, I would say I have looked at about ten different places, and so far we have only found probably 2-3 that we really like.  The problem with a lot of them is that applications have already been submitted on most of them, so that means we have to wait to see if the other families take them or not which equals more stress on me.

What I have found I despise about a lot of these realty companies up here is that even if I’m applying for multiple houses that company manages, I still have to pay application fees for each house, which makes applying for multiple houses a financial liability.  It also doesn’t help that I’m picky when it comes to rooms and room sizes.  We can manage with a two bedroom house, but those two bedrooms better be big because my two daughters would share a room and I don’t want them crowded, and my room needs to be big because it’s my wife and I plus all the baby stuff.  I also like to have a basement or another room, so the kids have somewhere to play, and so I can set up some office space for all of my activities.

Well whenever we find the perfect place and get approved for it, I’ll make sure to post some pictures and give you a quick lowdown of it.  Until then let me know any of your house hunting experiences in the comments below.  As always likes/comments/shares/follows are greatly appreciated, and will help me better myself as a writer.  Until next time.
