You're probably sick of my house hunting, I know I am
So as of now, we've seen right around 30 houses. Holy Crap. It doesn't end when I go to bed either. In my dreams I am looking at houses. What about these closets, floors, cabinet space, laundry room, garage size, yard size, location, bathrooms, ceilings? It's exhausting. But, we are getting closer. Last night we looked at 4 and saw two that we would actually consider making bids on. Hooray! Of course we cannot find one with all of the requirements we would like. These 2 would be sacrificing for a smaller yard, but at least they have grass and enough room for the trampoline. Also, they just aren't any closer to my folks. It would be great to be a few miles closer to my family, especially with the new baby coming. But as hard as I look, nothing in our price range with a decent garage and newer than 1990 is by them. But, what can you do. I like older houses with character, but Trent has quite a good argument about the quality of homes in our price range that are older and the extra expense of cooling and heating with older windows and that kind of thing. So I have 8 or 9 more houses I want to see by Monday or Tuesday and then I think we will be making an offer or two. Thanks for reading my boring post. That's what has been occupying 90% of my thoughts these last weeks.
