We've finally jumped back into the wide world of house hunting....and what a world it's been. We spent the last two days trekking over the city with our trusty real estate agent looking at roughly 20 houses.
Yes. 20. I'm exhausted.
And it is NOT as fun as they make it look on TV.
After awhile they all start to look the same and man are there some DUMPS out there. They make them look so glamorous in the online photos. Well let me say, photos are decieving!! They only photograph the new updated kitchen, nice windows and big backyard....convieniently leaving out the mold in the garage, the sloping floor and the buckling walls. YIKES!
We lucked out and found 3 good ones. Which in all honesty isn't TOO bad, it just means less to weed through. There's definitly a front runner between them, of course the most expensive. What can I say, I have expensive taste! However it's the biggest, move in ready and would be a long term house as opposed to the others which would only last 3-5 years (or baby #2) before we outgrew it.
We hear the final word from the bank today on our loan situation. Ideally we would of had the pre-approval done FIRST, but I didn't get them all our paperwork in time (oops, my bad!) so fingers crossed we haven't overspent our budget!
