I am in the midst of house hunting here in Tulsa. It is unfortunately very much a seller’s market. Not the best time to plan to move. Everything is very overpriced.
And even if you want it badly and are willing to pay the high price, unless you have cash, the appraisal is not going to get the bank loan. Quite a quandary to be in if you’re house hunting at this particular point in time.
House Hunting In A Seller’s Market:
I have some money put back, but with everything I’ll need to factor in, I fear it would not leave me anything left. And I just can’t do that.
It is a maddening process. Because sometimes the home is sold at listing. And no one even has the chance to see it.
What I’m Reading:
I am reading a book from 2016 called “The Fallen.” I picked it up on the clearance pile at B&N some time ago.
From the Emmy, PEN, Peabody, Critics’ Choice, and Golden Globe Award-winning creator of the TV show Fargo.
On a foggy summer night, 11 people: 10 privileged and one down-on-his-luck painter, depart Martha’s Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York.
Sixteen minutes later the unthinkable happens: The plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs, the painter, and a four-year-old boy.
The boy is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul’s family.
I’m trying to get my actual books read in order to give to my younger daughter Kasi because I don’t want to move them.
I have a lot of books waiting to be read on my iPad.
What I’m Watching:
At night after I finish supper I watch shows on streaming TV. Right now It is Masterpiece Theater’s “Unforgotten.”
Premise: Nicola Walker (Last Tango in Halifax, Babylon) and Sanjeev Bhaskar (Yesterday) star as DCI Cassie Stuart and Cassie’s partner-in-solving-crime, DI Sunny Khan. These two are veterans at uncovering the truth of tangled, complicated murders of the past.
But the deeper the truth lies, the bigger the emotional toll for the suspects, the families left behind, and for Cassie and Sunny to handle. How long can one fight for justice while preserving their own sanity?
I’m really enjoying this show. And am now watching Season 2. I love British shows.
I will keep you updated on house hunting in Tulsa.
