OMG house shopping is painful! We've been looking into buying our first house and it's all soooooo confusing!
We looked at 8 places today and the only place that was remotely worth putting in an offer had a cat living there now (I'm VERY VERY VERY allergic to cats so we can't buy a place that has any cats in it currently).
Our target area isn't the city we live in now either, and the best places get snatched up in 24-48 hours which makes it really hard to get out and see the places before someone else already buys it. At best we get home from work by 6PM, walk the dog, then have a 45 min drive to the other city to look at them in the evening (if we can even get an appt that late).
I'm so exhausted just from today that I'm falling asleep already. Am I being too picky? I want a place that is well kept and won't take too much work to fix up (ie some paint is ok, but if it needs new appliances or a new kitchen or new floors then I won't bother).
