So I found our perfect house today. It isn't perfect in all my wants catergories, but size, price, location it's all there for our 2nd house. BUT I don't have a job yet and we had planned on living with my parents for a little while to save up for new furnishings and what not.
We can afford the house only on H's income, but we can't drop tons of $$ on new furniture all at once like I had orginally planned on doing. I also wanted to use of this time to build up more savings.
But I really really don't want to let this house go and would be super bummed if we didn't get it. I had the light shining down moment when I saw it. This is a place we can raise a few more kids in and stay in at least 5-10 years and build equity (if we even decide to move).
