Oh give me a home

I'm still working out the verifications on an apartment over near the IRS. Traffic is not cute but it's still not the same as double the traffic time i'd have gotten living up or down Mopac.  I insisted on washer dryer connections. Insisted on short traffic time. I insisted on now. This place has it but you know, southeast austin has the 2nd highest crime rate. I figure I'm ok in a gated community cuz who really wants to steal a Honda CRV?  Frankly the only times I've had my car broken into it's been downtown and the same goes for other people I know.

Here's the rub. I was talking to a real estate fiend of mine, and he said he just sold a cute 1-1 condo on Woodrow for 111K.  I looked at my finances and the current average 6% home loan rate and with a down payment, I could have totally afforded this place!  So I guess I should maybe live out a new lease, save my ducats for a bigger down payment, and in maybe 9 months start looking to see if the loan rates drop to 4.5% as predicted and see if there are any cute tiny 1-1 condos or townhomes available then. He has another one in the same location which I could I guess try for, but I don't really want to chance the next 25 days on getting a loan on time, working with the sellers, etc etc in such a short time.

I could just kick myself in the butt though. But really it's all spiffie's fault, since he just sprung this on me. Everyone must hate the spiffie!
