House Hunting: Frustration!

First off, I would like to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my wonderful husband. He rocks, and I love him very much. I feel like I should've done something special since it's the first birthday we've celebrated as husband & wife. (In fact today, we have officially been married for 5 months!) We were planning on getting another tattoo, but we decided to hold off until Christmas for that. So...since we just decided that today, it left me in a bit of a bind...ugh. But I figured something out, that is pretty good. (More on that later) went from about 20 minutes South of the city, in the opposite direction…about 20 minutes North. With this one, we didn’t really have a whole lot of info. going in. This picture was actually the only picture up on the listing. (YIKES) I don’t really like when there aren’t any pictures…who does though, really? But we were ready to go out and take a look, to see if this could possibly become our house.

The Stats:
• Age: 1950’s ish
• House size: 1.5 storeys – roughly 1200 sq ft
• Land size: 150’ x 150’
• Bedrooms: 3
• Bathrooms: 2

The Pros
• Large property
• Decently sized rooms (according to MLS)

The Cons
• The drive in the winter is usually not great
• Has been vacant quite a while
• Don’t know much background

So while we were all ready to go view it, with our appointment set up and everything, I got an email from the listing agent that said it had been sold. UGH! Seriously, why does this keep happening? It is very frustrating, because there isn't really a ton out there right now (and we have very wide parameters) We weren’t really too upset about it though. Mainly because we didn’t really know anything about it, so we didn’t have a chance to get our hopes up. Not to mention we still have a few more on the list that we are more excited about/interested in.
SO...we still don't have a house.

We are getting close to the 60 day notification mark...for letting the landlord know when we'll be out. Our lease is up in December, and we were hoping we'd be able to be out by that gives us just under two weeks to find a place (if we're going to be out in December) We're hoping we won't have to pay for January (although we get the last month free - so technically it'd be December) - confused hehe? Me too. SO! We are going to see another place Sunday, and it's the most we've been excited about a place in a while, so lets hope it's decent.
