Ah yes, another housing crisis entry.
So.. after wasting nearly $1,200 on appraisals, and inspections.. we are done.
We got our appraisal back for the house we are in contract on and it’s appraised for 5k less than our contract price and that seller is not going to budge.
So after having a good tear or two fall down my cheeks.. it was time to focus back on finding a place to live, or risk being homeless in a month. Our lease is done come September and this place majorly sucks and requires 60 day notices.
So, we are moving back to where we came from two years ago, because it’s the only place where rent does not cost an arm and a leg and we can save up money quickly. So, it means trips to the laundromat once more, nowhere to store our shit, and no high impact exercises, because it shakes the whole damn apartment.
How am I going to start seeds in a one bedroom apartment? How am I going to can and preserve in the world’s narrowest kitchen? Will our kitchen table fit? Where am I going to put my washer and dryer in the meantime? We’ve accumulated a hell of a lot more stuff and what’s sad is that it’s not a lot of stuff in modern societies mindset, but for me.. it’s a lot, and it hurts deciding what’s necessary.
