So many have asked, so I find it easiest to post little updates here while we are in the house hunting phase! Tonight we had a chance to drive by 3 more properties and give them a thumbs up/down for a showing.
As of tonight, we have:
7 houses we would like to tour
9 houses we need to drive by, to determine if we need a showing
24 houses we have ruled out
We have a 4+ hour appointment with the realtor tomorrow, and will be seeing the inside of some homes for the first time! We have a wonderful friend and babysitter who has traveled from her home in Plains to help us out with the kids, so we can focus on these properties without the children underfoot! I only wish I had brought my snow boots, as we are getting some fresh snow! This is a perfect time to see properties because they are probably at their "ugliest" of the year: brown yards, barren trees, and mud. If we like it now, we'll probably love it in summer and winter! :)
