Looking for a house is becoming increasingly frustrating. Not because i’m not excited to do it, but because the area I live in is so incredibly confusing.
Take where I live now for instance. My neighborhood is safe. I’m comfortable walking around our complex at night. It’s quiet and family oriented.
Go out to the main road and cross it into the apartment complex.. NOT an area you want to be in. Not at all! I wouldn’t feel safe driving through there at night, much less living there.. and it’s right across the freaking street.
That’s what it’s like for this entire area. You could be living in an incredibly nice area, and just two streets over is the super-ghetto- don’t ever leave your car unlocked type area.
I’ve read posts online from people saying NEVER to even live in my city. I think that’s extreme.. but it makes you think.
While I know my current city pretty well (not well enough though), we’re looking at other cities to move to as well- and unfortunately we have to be extremely cautious about where we consider living.
It sucks. I wish I could say we could move anywhere and not have to worry about being ass-raped, but… I can’t exactly say that. Even when you see pictures of a super nice house, it does NOT mean that it’s in an area you would be safe in. The cost of rent for a 3 bedroom house says a lot about the area it’s in. The cheaper it is, the more you have to worry about what you’d be getting yourself into.
The most important thing to me when looking for a new house is that the area is nice. If we’re renting, i’m not too concerned with school systems because we can move to an area with better ones.. but the truth is most of the school systems here SUCK unless you live where my Dad lives, and that’s WELL beyond our means.
I’m not giving up hope. I have this feeling we’ll end up finding SOMETHING.. the question is- where will it be?
I don’t like the idea of moving across the water and being far away from my Dad and brother, but houses there are MUCH more affordable. Why? I will never know.
I've never had a near death experience, but I DID find 2 spiders in my house this morning, and that's pretty much the same thing.
If you like to be constantly criticized over your peanut butter to jelly ratio on sandwiches, being a parent is definitely for you.
