Months ago, I decided that I would put on my grown up pants and buy my first home. It’s the smart financial thing to do. I’m sick of living paycheck to paycheck and this is a great time to buy, right? My mortgage payment would be lower than renting the same place. How simple could it be?
Today I talked to a realtor who burst my bubble.
Basically, she told me that it’s becoming a seller’s market. Of course it is. I’m a loser with bad timing. Haven’t I figured that out yet?
I’m trying to stay positive, but it’s kind of difficult when you get kicked in the gut like that. I love my parents, but I cannot live here anymore. I need a place of my own. Living alone sucks, but living with my parents at my age is worse. I might be a loser, but at least I’m not that kind of loser.
I really need to find some stability though and in order to get it, I have to go through this process. And part of the process includes trusting someone who might not be as smart as me. Add to that the fact that I know how sales people can be, so I’m hoping she’s being honest and trying to make my expectations realistic instead of trying to up her commission. Because if she does that to me, she will rue the day! Rue it, I say!
See what I mean about trust issues? Or maybe they are control issues? Same thing?
