So, my brother and his family are moving to Raleigh and I have the privlidge of looking for a house for them.
Today I spent about 5 hours with some realtors looking all over. It was great fun. Besides the fact that my husband and I found a shell of a house in Boylan Heights that is VERY interesting, we also found a house that passes the sister standard.
I get way overwhlemed when things happen so fast. For example, we looked at the house for them, called them up and then there I am, helping them make an offer. After the realtors drove away I simply stopped to take a deep breath. When we found our house it was the same way though. I guess that is why "they" say that buying and selling houses is one of the most stressful times in life.
In the big picture of things though, its just a house... its temporary... its of "this" world... I'm GLAD!! That helps my needed deep breath last a little longer. It helps me to rest knowing that although where we live is important, its not the most important thing. Why do you think we put so much emphasis on things that don't last?
