We had to walk away from our dream house today. This place was amazing and it was the only place my wife and I both had no reservations about. It was big and bright, and didn’t make you feel like you were living in the city. We haven’t seen anything else like it since.
Unfortunately the Hardie board siding had been improperly installed. The seller refused to acknowledge the defect and we couldn’t reach a deal. After having multiple contractors come and look at it, there was just too much at risk and we had to walk. This sucks so hard and I’m extremely bummed about it.
House buying has to be one of the most emotionally tolling things someone can do. Spending almost all your money on a single asset is terrifying. Honestly, renting might be the move for a few more years.
