Operation New Home: A practice in patience, waiting to look

Are you guilty of randomly house shopping online? I am. For years I have pulled up an online real estate website and house shopped, fantasizing about what our “forever” home would look like. When we put our house up for sale, it felt like those fantasies would finally become a reality. We would finally have a house that fit our family.

Phil and I wanted to be practical though, we agreed early on that we would not go out touring homes until our house sold. We could look online – but wouldn’t shop in-person. We didn’t want to fall in love with a home and not be able to get it. We certainly were not going to have two mortgages, that’s for sure.

It was pretty tough. When your house is on the market, it feels like an eternity has passed when it’s only been a few weeks. I feel for those that have had their house on the market for months, or even years. Just remember, “Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.” – Aristotle
