We have decided that we need to get OUT of our condo. We have definitely outgrown it, and really hate living here. Not to mention the building is pretty much falling apart. I mean, it looks fine from the outside, but there are problems with it. So, we discussed a few options and one of them included moving to Indiana. That has always been our plan, but every time I think about it, I just can't see us doing that. I was going to write a whole pro and con list, but before I could do that we decided to try another option.

The option we are going to try is to rent our condo and buy a house here. There are tons of houses south of here- lots of brand new houses- that cost as much as our condo did. So that right there tells you something about the market here. Anyway, we are going to see if we can get a loan. If so, we will be house shopping! It won't be hard to rent our place out because we are super close to the University. So that is a huge plus even though I hate living in this area. So please wish us luck in getting another mortgage. I really hope we can. Otherwise, I'm not sure what we will do.

Hi Heather! I could've written your post word for word- we're in the midst of house hunting as well b/c it's just feeling TOO cramped in our itty bitty condo w/ a toddler. Selling in this market is pointless, so we're hoping to rent ours out and are looking to buy a home that will suit our needs. Just wanted to wish you luck with the process... I'm tired of it already and we've really only been looking for a couple of weeks!
