I think that we have given up looking for single family home for the time being. Instead, we are looking at condos.
After looking at nearly fifty houses, and not seeing any we liked, we started looking at condos. As my wife and I have never lived in anything other than apartments since we have been dating, I cannot see why this would be a big change for us other that slightly higher monthly payments, and some equity.
The major factor in our decision to relocate is that we need a third bedroom. RJ will sleep by himself. Tony will sleep by himself. Neither will sleep if they are together. From RJ climbing into Tony’s crib, to Tony crying in the middle of the night and waking RJ up, our decision to put the boys in the same room has been a trial since we moved to Ohio.
Now that we have switched gears, we are actually seeing homes that we like. For the first time we finally found a place that we actually want to get more information about!
