Are you addicted to house hunting? Even if you love where you live? - Page 2

post #21 of 25

I can't believe I found this conversation on Mothering!  I was doing a search on 'addicted to house hunting' and this was the first place I clicked.  It was so comforting that it was Mothering and that there would be other like-minded women here - who also love looking at houses!  I've been in my house for 4 short years and love it, but find myself wanting to move already.  I'm trying to figure out why because my family is perfectly happy where we are (I wouldn't leave the school district).

 

I've found a house in the next neighborhood, which is smaller and makes me feel I could stay in it through retirement. There's something about being in my house, knowing we'll sell it when the kids grow up, that makes me feel I can't call it home.  I think this might be a theme with me - I only feel truly at home when I visit my hometown, even tho my mother doesn't live in the house I grew up in.  Is this more about finding a sense of home than it is about the house?  If this is the case, I probably need to wait out the season - I always feel more cozy in my house when I start nesting for the fall and winter.  I could also look for ways to make my house feel more like home.

 

Anyone else have this strange sense of looking for home through house hunting?  Carol

I'm dreaming of a little place on the Oregon coast! Maybe its the two teenagers in the house.

This site has become my little escape for a few minutes each week.

I've been seeing small homes for under 200K. Some close to the water. Seems like a lot of folks are getting rid of the second home in this economy.
