Buying a home is fun.
Throw in a global pandemic and it’s just a barrel of monkeys!
We are moving to Colorado…..someday.
And we will need some shelter. So we had a call with our realtor tonight to talk through the landscape given COVID-19. We had high hopes of flying out there in the next couple of weeks to house hunt. That’s obviously not happening. Look, being a military family, I’m kewl doing things on the fly. Buy a house sight unseen in a neighborhood I’ve never been in? Honestly, I can roll with it. No biggie. Really, it just isn’t that difficult for me to make huge life decisions like six-figure investments. I’d pull the trigger tonight if I found a house I like. I can NOT however make up my mind on where I want to order takeout from tomorrow. It’s like do I want french fries or Mexican food, it’s just too big for one person to decide on her own.
But really do y’all want to pick out a house for me?
