Let the House Hunting Begin!
Hi 🙂 How was your weekend?
Mine was a roller coaster of emotions. As of my post on Friday, we were very close to canceling our trip to San Diego, but all is good now! We received an offer on our house!
We actually received the offer over a week ago. I was afraid to jinx it, so I kept the news to the myself until the home had it’s inspection and we were officially under contract.
After going back and forth with the buyers for five days, we finally settled!!
This was one of the most exhausting and emotionally draining processes I have ever been through. Between the first buyer’s getting cold feet, and the struggle we had with these buyer’s, all I can say is it’s most definitely a buyer’s market.
Bad if you’re selling a house, but good if you’re buying a house. Hopefully this buyer’s market will follow us to San Diego 🙂
This means our San Diego house hunting trip is back on! We leave tomorrow morning. We’re making a stop in NYC on Tuesday, then heading to San Diego the following day.
Mr. Weekly Bite & I lived in San Diego for 5 years before moving to DC, so we’re familiar with the area… but it has been five years. After doing tons of research, and with the help of friends, we’ve narrowed our search to 3 different neighborhoods.
Here’s what we’re focusing on:
- School districts
- Family oriented community
- 4 Bedrooms
- Not too far away from the beach
- Not too far from Mr. Weekly Bite’s work
If money were not an issue, we’d be buying a house in Del Mar. That’s our favorite beach spot. We just love it there! But… being that we’re not quazi-millionaires, we’re going to have to pass.
I’ll be blogging all about our house hunting adventures so stay tuned!
I’ve got lots of packing to do.
See you from San Diego 🙂
