House follow up

So, we were told yesterday that the people who came to see the house this past weekend won't pay a dime over 200k for this house or any other house in the complex.  Dumb.  So, we are lowering the price slightly to see if that garners interest, and if not, we are taking it off the market and sticking to the original 3 year plan.  The house could use a bit more work to make it perfect, so maybe doing that will help sell the place.

I have mixed emotions about the whole thing.  I wasn't too keen on putting the house on the market in the first place; just didn't feel right.  But as time went on, I became more find of the idea, obsessively looking for houses.

The end of the 3 year plan is March 2012...not too far off.  Could we hack it another year in the incredible shrinking townhouse?  I really think we could.  I really think we may have to...

Oh hai interwebs,,,

So the house is up for sale.  I don't know who knows it, and who doesn't, so I figured I'd mention it here.  Do I want to move? Nope.  I love our neighborhood.  Love the people here.  Love that it's a little community.  However, do we 'have' to move?  Yuppers.  The kids are growing rapidly, and our townhouse seems to be shrinking just as rapidly.  The kids seriously need their own rooms.  They wake eachother up all of the time...way before the other is ready. 

We are looking for a 4 bedroom home in a specific price range.  Hah.  It's comical, almost.  We both love this area, but it's freakin' expensive!!  We've looked in PA, but neither of us really, really want to leave the Jerz.  We've looked about an hour South and there are nice, affordable, BIG houses there.  We are saving that for last resort.  There has to be something here, there just has to be.  We are looking in neighboring cities, too.  The house that we truly fell in love with has been sold, and even though I knew that us getting it was a long shot, it still makes me sad that it's no longer available.  Oh well, c'est la vie.
