Trying To Buy A House is Like Shopping For A Bathing Suit

I have decided that trying to buy a house is exactly like shopping for a bathing suit:

It starts out full of hope and promise.

You take a risk and look at all different kinds.

After looking awhile you take the plunge and "try it on" - meddle it over.

It's scary, nerve-wracking and you're not sure if you've made the right decision.

You look at your choice from all angles and sides, scrutinizing it up and down, left and right.

Finally, you become confident and decide to go for it. You make an offer.

Then comes the waiting and waiting and waiting.

It's going to be great. Summer plans are already being forged. It's going to look great!

Then the time comes to put it into action and you realize that it's just not what you thought it was.


Stupid bathing suits house buying.

Long story short: we found out that the house we thought we were going to get has a crazy, massive lien from the State due to back taxes. Double boo.

Such an emotional roller coaster.

Okay - so, house #2 lost. In the words of Jay-Z, on to the next one...


  1. So annoying! I'm sorry. But I think with things like this.. everything happens for a reason, you'll get your house :) ps you did not just quote jay z, haha, that's funny. well written btw.

  2. I LOVE the comparison. You're right - buying a house is like buying a bathing suit.

    Keep looking. One day all the pieces will come together and you'll the perfect home.

    That first one is special and you'll always love it.

  3. I'm so sorry! The house buying process is so stressful! Fingers crossed you find something even better...xoxo

  4. Boooo!!! So sorry.. but if you just relocate a bit, I know of a great little yellow house for sale! (wink)

    The perfect one is out there.. and I LOVED the title by the way.
