Waiting for the dream to come true

Today my feelings have been very high and very low. I contacted a Realtor and a broker in order to assess if we could sell our condo and upgrade to a larger home. Things looked good. Our credit was looking great and I was already having visions of more space and room to grow. But then when D got home we talked about what buying a new home would really entail and it hit me like a ton of bricks that we would need more money for the down payment and closing costs. Unfortunately, we do not qualify for the home buyers tax credit due to being current home owners so that can not help us with our situation. I got so depressed when I realized that we have to delay our dream of more space even further. D asked me what is the big hurry and I guess there isn't one. I had just got excited about something new. I pictured a bigger, nicer home to have children in. I wanted to move NOW! All hope is not lost though. We regrouped and came up with a plan to pad our savings and hope to be in the market for something new in 6 months or so. It is just my hope that the market continues to have good bargains so we can get our dream house at a dream price.

Home buying is such a great adventure. I can totally relate to wanting to get into something with more space! I hope that when you guys are ready to buy you are able to find exactly what you want.
