Why is house hunting so frustration.
My fiancé and I found what we thought would be the thee perfect house, again! It’s cute, lots of curb appeal, open, old dog-housed cape style, huge front porch, large wrap around deck, 15 minutes from out potential jobs, the school district is the best one in the area...
It also has no neighbors! It’s basically surrounded by a corn field! This is one of the big reasons we love this place. When we expressed our interest in the property or agent started thoroughly researching it. Turns out the land that surrounds it is own by one of the big developers in the area! Ugh!
Our agent basically says she cannot guarantee that the land behind us won’t stay undeveloped. The 20 acre plot is actively being farmed, but it’s not owned by “old farmer Joe” who’s business has been in the family for 100 years.
Now my fiancé and I are at a loss! Do we buy this place that we love? We don’t plan on staying here forever, when we are in a better financial place we’ll be buying something bigger. We also wouldn’t mind they put houses back there, but what if it’s condos, or worse, a commercial building!! Do we skip this one and wait for something else to come along? It’s also entirely possibly that the plot of land behind us never gets touched.
Why can’t house hunting just be easy?!
