11 Harrowing Stories About Homeownership – And How Hard It Is To Get There!

| Right | June 9, 2021

Dear readers,

June is National Homeownership Month! Owning your own home is a freeing feeling; you can nail stuff to the walls and not have to worry about patching the holes later, you don’t have to check with anyone before you paint the walls neon pink, and you don’t have to pay extra for pets!

But buying a house is often a stressful, tedious, complicated process. I don’t know about you, but I sure didn’t learn about mortgages, FHA loans, or property taxes in school. The financial burden aside, it’s just plain hard to buy a house!

We’ve rounded up eleven stories from our archives about people who made buying a house way harder than it needed to be. Whether you own, rent, or couch-surf, we hope you enjoy them!

Not Moving Outside Of The Box – Hits from the comments: “I think I’ve just encountered something stupider than potential house buyers complaining about the wall color.”
