holy houses, batman

Okay, so looking for a house went from several months of causal browsing to “whoa nelly!” I’m finding plenty of things to consider and visit and see what will happen with what I’m willing to offer. However, the first house we saw (well first and only so far — it was on sunday) was a big eye opener and a bit freaky in making us wonder what we’re getting into. But, I think I’ve gotten over that shock, we’ve made some concessions and we’re ready to get down to business.

However, I run into the issue of feeling bad for making the agent show us places. Now — this sounds absolutely ridiculous when I think about it, but I can’t help feeling guilty. And then I have to wonder what messed up childhood mentality has lead me to feel guilty for taking advantage of the service someone will be paid for providing. I guess there is that fear that we won’t buy a house, but that doesn’t feel very likely at the moment , maybe it is because I know the commission won’t be impressive based on what we can afford, but that shouldn’t really matter either. Sigh, I need to get over this because we’ve got a lot of houses coming up that need checking out and I just can’t be feeling bad every time I make a request to see one.
