Too good to be true.

The house inspection came back clean, our loan was approved, the house was getting more and more perfect for us each time we went to visit. And now:

Everything has fallen apart. Because the loan officer did not know about the house needing to be built before 1978, we are now ineligible for the downpayment assistance program for first time homebuyers that we have been banking on. We missed it by four years.

I knew I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up like Isaac didn’t. But everything was coming along so effortlessly, it was so perfect- almost too good to be true.

And now, we aren’t going to be able to get the house because we don’t have the 4000 to be able to put down before the end of November.

And the likelihood of us finding another perfect house that we like before the end of November is unlikely. Which is when we have to let our landlords know if we are renewing our lease or not. And month-to-month renting is just way too expensive.

Today is a hard day. I’m just a tad depressed. I got far too excited for the house and had fallen even more in love with it during the home inspection the other day. Ugh.

  1. Poor honey… its not that hard to find a house. Register yourself on the MLS and pound the pavement big time. Don’t rely only on your real estate agent. Use your smarts kiddo. You can do this.

    I found my own house. My realtor was nice and all, but had no clue as to what I expected out of a house.

    I got lucky with http://www.ziprealty.com I don’t know if they have that in your area. But it gives you every single house that has come up on the market for sale.

    Good luck baby

  2. Hope you are doing better honey… keep me up to date on whats going on ok? Mwah love you lots!

  3. P.S. Yay Obama!

  4. Try not to worry about your “stuff” so much. You are young and have plenty of time to get what you want out of life.

    Things could be much, much worse.
