I'm feeling a bit down this morning, due to our inability to find any affordable housing to buy. I have to remind myself that it has been a long time since I owned a house, and there is nothing that says I HAVE to buy one this summer. Renting is ok, too. I should know -- I've been doing it for the LAST SEVEN YEARS! It's just that I had my heart set on finding a house or a townhouse or a condo or SOMETHING to buy, and instead I'm finding lots of land speculators who buy up houses for cash. The market here is INSANE! Who would think that you would have to bid OVER the asking price of a cheap little house in a funky college town like this one? If you ask me, the city council needs to get up off its' collective ass and DO SOMETHING about the situation here, so that people who make a decent living can afford to buy a simple house.
Whew. Rant over.
