I wanted to share about my experience. I did write a post but don't think it went through. I hate the house we purchased this past Sept 2016. We live on an island. My back yard has a canal. The front faces a bay where the park is. I hate it because all the park people can see my house and if I have the windows open can see inside. I like my privacy but have none. Along with the creepy crawlys that live on the water. The house has negativity as I find my husband and I argue all the time. And we both keep getting sick. The house is more than we can afford and I want out. He seems to think if I put my touches on it everything will be fine. I have done a few upgrades but can't do nor do I want to do anymore. The house was poorly built. It's freezing in the winter and is surrounded by too many windows. Along with its 90's decor. I just want out. I have a plan to save 10,000.00 again but it's gonna take a while. I feel like we got duped by the realator who saw two suckers and I miss my old house. And although I did want to move I just wanted a house with a bigger back yard and a pool. I liked the area where we used to live and miss it. I am not a lake person. Thank you for listening.... more
Don't be sad! Remember there was a reason (s) that you chose this one and not the other. If it is in your budget hire an Interior Decorator to work with the space..OR use online resources to design the space. I know you will learn to love it... more
I'm sorry you and your house are not getting along. Take Elizabeth's advice and talk with a local realtor. Even if you financially can not get out of it now, that realtor may be able to give you some clarity of your options. If not now, but how to get to where you want to be.
I trust everything will work out in the end for you and your husband.... more
