A Little Breathing Room

20 June 2012

This week has completely spiraled out of control. I have barely been on to check anything, and this home search is eating all of my free time. I will be taking a break for the next few days to get caught up on work and put my energy to the home search. I'm going a little out of my mind trying to find a house with air conditioning, wood floors and more than 1000 sq ft for under $1800. Sounds easy, right?

Not in Austin. Homes disappear sometimes before they even hit the market. And that's the rentals. I can't imagine trying to buy here. With rents like this, we may never get to. I have a been a nervous, wine drinking, caffeine chugging wreck. A dangerous combination at best. I promise I will be catching up on outfit posts and such this weekend. I haven't been this overwhelmed in a while, and just need a mini breather. 

See you guys Monday!


  1. house searching is always hard, good luck my dear :)

  2. Good luck with the house hunt! Homes are crazy expensive here and so we just rent :)

  3. I am in your shoes right now up here in Seattle! It is so stressful. This one property management company charges $80 per application and lets like 5 people apply and there is no refund if you don't get the house. You could end up applying to 20 houses before you get one. THEN they take first months, last months AND a deposit equal to a month's rent. That is like $6000 up front. Crazy. I wish you the best of luck. You will find a great house!
