I don’t know if I can handle this whole “house buying” thing. (Sorry, I don’t want to turn this blog into Nathan’s Story of Buying a House, but it is the main thing going on in my life right now.) If you haven’t even gone through the process, I would recommend not starting. And if you have gone through the process, why the hell would you ever want to do this again?
Finding the house was easy. I basically just pointed and said yes. Even getting the loan wasn’t that bad. I basically just went and saw a guy and said yes. But now I’m getting into the nitty gritty. I had my inspection, and of course they found stuff that was wrong. Like big scary stuff. At least, it sounds big and scary to me. So now I’m having to get quotes on how much that is going to cost to fix.
And I’m also trying to get homeowner’s insurance. But because the house has old wiring, and my insurance agent isn’t calling me back, that’s proving to be very difficult.
Nothing in this whole process happens at the speed that I would like, and no one responds to me as quickly as I would like, and nothing is quite as good as I would like. So I’m just very unhappy, and trying not to think about it.
I can probably deal with this for another month…
