This is a very important concept and since it is a Sunday and I am feeling antsy and annoyed that I can’t save money any faster, houses aren’t posting every five seconds that I love and that I can’t get a house tomorrow, I decided to talk about how important having patience is.
We have all heard that “patience is a virtue”, this is obvious. If one cannot wait for good things to happen, they force things to happen which give a much less satisfactory outcome most of the time. Sometimes jumping the gun can lead to good things! I have seen it happen to plenty of people and commend them for that. However, when it comes to home buying, unless you are a genie its just about impossible to get what you want and move out right away unless you win the lottery or are buying a brand new house.
The housing market is a very complicated area of expertise, which is why I truthfully don’t even try to understand. As I had said in my last post,What I Learned from the Mortgage Lender, I made it clear that I have full trust in them and I count on my Lender and Realtor to deal with everything I do not know.
The hardest part with waiting is that I believe I am ready to own a home but the housing market just isn’t on the same page as me *rolls eyes*. It is SO hard to be patient when all you want is your own space and home to renovate and make your own. To start new beginnings and make new memories seems like so far away from where we are right now. It’s tough to see everyone else getting their first homes when Nick and I are like struggling to find anything with adequate land and a decent house. BUT I know it will be fully worth it because my mantra that I believe in most is “If it’s meant to be it will happen!” I have to keep telling myself this because I am getting so impatient with this whole process and I just want to be a home owner, especially since I live with my mom.
Conclusively, to let everyone think and understand the importance of patience I need to say that it WILL be worth it in the end. I really need to learn to have patience because I want to go to medical school, that will be a long way away! Lots of patience necessary there!
Do you guys have any advice on how to calm yourself down and have patience for something you want? Let me know what’s on your mind!

Having your own home is going to be a wonderful experience. Patience is important and you can only learn that with experience, no one can ever tell you how to be patient.
When we bought our first home (condominium) we thought, great now we have made it… Then we realized that we were in a rush to simply get into more responsibility than we were ready for. Don’t get us wrong, we would not trade in our experience for anything. What we are saying is that we would have learned more about what we could have done and bought two homes instead of one.
As far as medical school, once you graduate we have no doubt that you will have plenty of… Patience.

You are so nice and thank you for that truthful comment! It’s gotten harder the longer we wait because we know what we want but it’s just not on the market for us right now or it’s too expensive. It will come when the time is right I know it, and I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason! Thank you for your kind words!
