house hunting is not as fun as it sounds

Hello blog world!

I have been MIA for awhile because things have been so crazy! Matt and I are trying to find a house and have been looking since January. Unfortunately we picked the absolute worst time to buy a house (well except for maybe 2007). The inventory is so low right now that buyers are scrambling to find decent houses. The stressful part is that you have to be so vigilant and always watching online to see a house pop up, so you can be one of the first to offer. Houses are getting multiple offers within the first week they are on the market. 

We had an offer accepted on a house in a Marietta neighborhood, and ended up backing out of it the last day we could. We got cold feet because we knew we would be stretched financially and didn't want to be house poor.

Now we are back to square one. Hopefully something will pop us soon! Wish us luck. :-)

It's a process, but there will be a perfect house for you and Matt. Hang in there!
