One was so hideously decorated inside I wanted to shower the ugliness off. They actually allowed each of their children to paint whatever color they wanted (think lime green ugliness, neon yellow). By the looks of it the children did the ACTUAL painting. Yeah, it was THAT bad. Combine that with the plaid and floral borders in the bathrooms and kitchen, several different kinds of carpet (though all new) and it was epitome of ugliness.
We drove by at least
43 7 others and none of them were worth looking inside. House hunting is further complicated by schools...and which ones we want our kids to attend. Trying to find a rental house within the school boundaries we hope to buy a home is proving nearly impossible. Renting outside of those boundaries means ANOTHER new school for the kids in a year.
We have put them through more than enough these last 2 years and we can't possibly do this to them. I hate feeling like we have no choice. I hate that our house hasn't sold yet and our budget isn't a bit bigger. I hate feeling like I have to make a decision NOW or risk losing a house...though we have 2 1/2 months before the kids and I will actually be living here.
Oh, and just to keep things interesting, #1 house is listed for sale and will remain on the market. So while the agent doesn't foresee it selling in the next 6 months there is always that possibility. Also, we will have to be ready for a showing with 24 hours notice. So really same shit, different state for me.
Where's my easy button?
