29 Jul Feeling priced out of the housing market
My market is hot, has been for awhile and shows no signs of slowing down. I’ve put in two offers this year, and had to walk from both due to inspection results.
I decided to go the highest I can go on a beautiful house in my ideal location. I signed the contract, offered $1100 over and offered to pay full closing. My realtor hits me up, saying the listing agent basically shit on my dreams…asking me to offer more. I said, “No…that’s as high as I can go” and that was that.
It’s frustrating because I really am starting to feel like this homeownership dream is just not going to happen for me. I’m not broke by any means, I’m a younger professional and a veteran who planned to use my VA loan. I know I’m not the only one, just frustrating how stacked the market seems to be against first time buyers…
