The House Hunt
We just spent the morning looking at houses with our realator. It was interesting! When we met at 10:00 I had my 3 ring binder ready to go with tabs dividing our 8 prospects. In each section were maps, notes, highlighted information, and questions about each house. When we met the realestate agent she handed me a small paper folder with the copied papers of all the houses stapled together. Then she saw that I had all that and more ready to go- and organized! She just laughed at me with my notebook and highlighter in hand! I'm sure I looked like a nerd! So, here's the summary of our search... 1 house was already sold, 1 house was in too dangerous of a neighborhood, and 4 others needed to be totally gutted (thousands of $'s worth of repair/ reconstruction) before we could even consider living in them (they were being sold for around $150,000 by the way!). Two of the houses we looked at we are considering. They are far from my "dream home", but with a lot of cosmetic touches we could make do! The MLS numbers are 3231029 and 3279554. I'll keep you all posted as we keep hunting and try to decide what to do here. Please keep praying for us! We need wisdom.
