House Hunting0

House hunting is a chore.  It can also be fun and exciting, but it takes a lot of time, and there can be some frustrating moments. 

My girlfriend and I just went through a typical house-hunting scenario:   we made an offer, they made a counter-offer, we counter-offered their counter-offer . . . and then the owner got a bit greedy.  Basically, the owner wanted roughly $20,000 more than the house was worth; it needed a new roof, a whole-new A/C system, and a new circuit breaker.  That’s a lot of money that we didn’t have – and sadly, at the price the owner is looking for, these issues will insure that the house stays on the market for a long time.

But, I can say that our house hunting experiences are not as bad as some . . .

This first video comes in two parts.  Starring Paul Rudd and Zooey Deschanel, it is entitled (aptly enough) House Hunting.  And it made me realize how happy I am with our realtor.  Be aware that it’s not for the kiddies.

PART 1

PART 2:

This next video comes from the BBC television show Spine Chillers.  It involves the two main characters (both Goths) endeavoring to rent a flat:

And lastly, for a more a more whimsical look at house-hunting, but one that is still quite grim, check out this clip from the Cartoon Network’s great little show Adventuretime

So I’m kind’a okay with the few problems my girlfriend and I have run into while house hunting.  At least it hasn’t involved manic realtors, lying creepy Goth landlords, or magical monsters.  That gives me hope that we’ll be in a new place soon.
