Please wish me luck or....

sexysweetieshan sexysweetieshan
I would love it if people could wish me luck. Or if you're a religious person, that you could pray for me right now.

The hubby and I just put an offer on a house. It's the second house we've put an offer on. We ended up losing the first house to sheriff sale because of a bad realtor. This house is perfect for us. It's so beautiful, needs some TLC, and it's huge. We want to start a family.

We kind of have a crappy situation right now. We live in a house owned by his parents. We live there alone, it's just his parents house. They are pretty controlling with some things and we don't feel comfortable there. They like to have a say on everything that happens because it's "their" house. Plus it's a really old house that is just falling apart. There's parts of the floor falling through, bad wiring, just no room, a tiny kitchen (my head touches the ceiling and I'm only 5'8"), and it's just not pleasant to live there. I get sick and tired of everything breaking and going wrong and there's just NO ROOM.

We really would love to get this other house we put an offer on. However, I just found out today, there are FOUR other offers on it, and thursday afternoon, they are gonna take the highest and best offer. So I'm really stressed out trying to figure out if I should change my offer, and how much I should make it. I don't want to go too high or too low, but I want that house!

Any prayers or good luck comments are so greatly appreciated. I'm not sure if this is something okay to put on the forum, but it's in the social section, so if there's an issue, just let me know please and I'll remove it.

I don't think it's an issue at all to post this here, and good luck!!!! I hope it ends up being your new home and that if it doesn't, you'll find something else right away! I know living w/ in-laws SUCKS - did it for years.

Thank you so much ToriRebel. It feels good to get good luck wishes. It makes me hope that things will work out with so many people behind me!

Oh and I don't live WITH the in-laws, we just live in a house they own. Still sucks though.

I'm sure it does! I lived with my ex-husband's parents in an apartment (mother in law suite type thing) in their house for the entirety of our marriage. Don't worry, you'll find the right house!!!

I understand how you feel, my partner and I were living under relatives too. It could be rough sometimes. We recently moved in with a friend of ours, it's not our own house but it's much better.

Good luck, I hope you get it!

Good luck. House hunting and buying is always so emotionally draining.

I hope you get the house.

Thanks Cynthia!

Also a bit of good news. We found out information about ONE of the other four offers. It is also someone wanting to live in the home (not an investor wanting to rent it out), which usually is bad news, meaning they will be more competition, however, we were told they offered kinda low. That was nice to hear. Keep your fingers crossed, and the prayers, and good luck wishes coming! Thanks a ton guys!

Thank you tons kck, Ju!ia, Sammi, Dwtim, aleong, and NuMe! I appreciate it a lot! Today is the day we go change our offer, so hopefully we pick the right amount that is high enough, but not too high. And then thursday (tomorrow) we will find out the "winner".

Well today I changed my offer and upped it a little bit. Hopefully we made a good choice on the amount. Now the suspense of waiting around to hear if we win. Could hear tomorrow, or friday, or next week! Hopefully soon though. I hate the waiting!!!!! So please continue the prayers and good luck wishes! I hope this all works out for me.

Trust me, I'm very grateful for freedom as my husband is ALSO in the military and has been deployed and been gone. But that's the issue. We do not have freedom in our own house, the place we live.

I am happy my in-laws let us live in their old house. However that's what it is. An old house that's falling apart with no freedom in that house. There is absolutely NO room to put a baby in that house. There is not an extra bedroom. I want to start a FAMILY which is important as you pointed out, yet I cannot do it there. It would be a terrible life for a child if we lived there.

It IS something we need. Maybe not that house specifically, but A house is a very big NEED for us right now. Not just a want. Plus this is not exactly a "nice" house we're going for. It's definitely extremely affordable and needs lots of work. But we're willing to do the work, to be able to THEN enjoy a nice house.

Thanks for the prayers and wishes of luck.
