Househunting part 2
For a couple months we've been seriously househunting. And by that I mean, a couple months ago we looked at six places (pics here!), loved one of them, made an offer, and have been waiting to hear back (it's a short sale). We've been watching for other possibilities, but nothing nearly as good has come up. It's a bummer.
But, we did take a look at these places over the weekend. Kinda liked this first one, but it's a little too far from work. It would have to be really great in other ways for it to be a winner... not sure yet.
We also checked out this one, very new, super nice, but again, not nearly as cool as the one we made the offer on!
We've seen a couple others that aren't even worth posting pics of. Grrr. Since we hadn't found anything else perfect, we expanded our search criteria, then realized, nope, we're still sure of what we want!
So, it's been pretty discouraging. We are SO ready to move! Tired of our little apartment/townhouse thing.
The good news is that they're still building in the neighborhood we love most, so if we decide to shell out the extra for a brand new townhouse (and wait until they're done in July, boo...), we could get exactly what we want! Here's what the new lots look like now...
We could live in this cute neighborhood! Here I am loving the stainless steel appliances, real granite, and hardwood floors that come standard in this builder's construction...
I can't believe we might get a brand new house!! There are a lot of pros and cons to weigh, a lot of factors to think about, etc. etc. And it all depends what happens with this short sale... hopefully we'll find out this week.
Have you ever designed or had built a house? Is it worth it, versus a six- or seven-year old house? I know that's a complex question, but if you have any wisdom, pass it on!
