We've been house hunting the past few days:
House #1: Built in 1958, and probably never had anything new added since. Does that sound romantic? Well, it might be, but actually it was a DUMP! It would have had to have been totally gutted. No thanks.
House #2: I think this one was built in the early 70's. There were some updates, but it was pretty much the same house as when built, with an orange sink and avocado green tub in one bathroom. With a little work we could raise the property value, but I'm not sure we are up to the work.
House #3: This house was BEAUTIFUL! The only problem is that there was a big problem with the floors. Everywhere we walked, the floor was unlevel. I actually got kind of motion sickness walking in it. It reminded me of the Mystery House in California. Too bad, because it was a nice looking house.
House #4: This house is an older house too, but had a gorgeous view of the mountains, and is a BIG house. I keep thinking about this one, even though it is kind of expensive.
House #5: This house was also built in the early 70's, and probably not changed much since. It was just depressing. Even the realtor suggested we just leave instead of finishing seeing the entire house. And it was on a busy street. Yuck..no thanks.
So the search continues. We really need to find something too, so we are praying hard. :)
