Readers may have gathered that I was a bit disappointed at the slow pace of our househunting efforts, but no more--I have cured myself. Brian has been out with the agent three times and we've been to a dozen or more open houses by ourselves. There are a handful of places we've seen already that would be ok, but no perfect houses--the yard's too small for me, the house is too uninspired for Brian, the road is too busy out front. Victoria nixed one house because it was a ranch style: "There's no upstairs!" For some reason, she was decidedly indignant about this.

But after he'd seen a few of the more likely candidates, Brian started to get angsty. He's wondering when he'll know he's looked enough and can make a decision. Agreement is anathema to our relationship, so now I find myself quite comfortable with our situation. The rental place is reasonable, we're not working against any deadline, and there's no shortage of places for sale around here even now--and plenty of people who can wait until Spring to put their houses on the market do wait. The person I feel sorry for is our real estate agent.

NO Hurry, it's not 2003 anymore.
ISTR that Ohio has a pretty high foreclosure rate, so with the subprime mortgage market imploding, IMHO you'll just get more and more choices as time goes on.

NEVER feel guilty or embarassed to offer what you feel like paying. They can accept it, counter offer, or walk off in a huff and hope to find a greater fool.
