We started looking at houses just under two months ago. We knew we might be cutting it close because our lease here is up at the end of June. We didn't have much choice, really. We wanted to make the purchase coincide as closely as possible with the end of our lease because if we wanted to break the lease, we would have to magically *poof* $2250.00 into our bank account. You heard me right. It would cost us over two thousand dollars to break our lease. And if we got to the end of the lease, hadn't found a house, and wanted to go month-to-month, it would cost an extra $100.00 a month. Our money tree is a little fruitless right now, so we opted for the "time it just right" plan. We got lucky. Not everyone does. Their empty pockets are the proof.
