House Hunting

So many of you know that I am currently looking for a house to buy. While it is very exciting, it is very scary. It has been quite a learning experience even up to this point of just starting to go out and look at houses.

So far I have learned:

  • I don’t like chain link fenced yards or duplex/apartment-villes
  • I don’t like carpet
  • I tend to only look at houses on-line if they have lots of pictures
  • Houses can be deceiving – they look like they might work but underneath they are hiding lots of problems
  • There are a lot things that I will have to buy that I never had to think about before – like lawn mowers, a fridge, vacuum, hoses, broom, trashcans…(and the list goes on and on)
  • That I can live with less that I originally thought – especially if I am paying for it all
  • When I make my list of things that I will have to purchase, there are many comforts and not needs that get crossed off the list

The list could continue for quite a while and I am sure that I will continue to learn many more things than I ever thought necessary.

I have some stuff packed away, I will have to go through it so I don’t duplicate or needlessly spend money. However, I bought a table and 4 chairs today, they were a steel, $67 for the set. Then I went with mom to Pier 1 and got some dishes, cute ones. :-}

I am going to look at houses with a Realtor tomorrow, again it is scary and exciting. I don’t know what to expect really. Or even how to do this. But it can’t kill me, cause lots of other people make it through alive. 🙂

This is all on house hunting for now – more to follow as the adventure continues.
