House Hunters

Today was our first going to open houses. Wasn't too bad, only three with our requirements. The first one was nice. Big kitchen, laminate floors through out, nice yard. They already had three offers on it and if we wanted it we'd have to make one by 2:00 tomorrow. Well, it was nice, but we didn't like it that much and we really aren't in the position to be making an offer that soon anyway.

The second one was priced really low! Like $100k less...and we saw why. I mean with that extra $100k we could make a really bitchen house! LOL. But, to do that would be A LOT of work. I'm not too keen on it. It is also a foreclosure so that makes me twitchy. When we got there the realtor wasn't even there. I found a way in! LOL! By the time he showed we were done looking. He'd never even been through the whole place. We talked to him for a minute and found out about it being a foreclosure. That's why, I guess.

Third house was lovely! Nicely redone. Kitchen was tiny, though...and you all know how I feel about that. BUT the rest of the house was nicely redone. Hardwood floors through out, which honestly, after having them AND 4 cats, it's really a pain chasing fur balls all around the house with a broom. The back yard was perfect. Sigh...I think if we were able to, we would have seriously considered making an offer. First weekend out though...

Tomorrow, I'm meeting with our realtor to go look at a bunch of houses, then we will go back out that evening with the man so he can see too.

I also have an apt with my allergist. I think I will fess up this time to my allergies being worse now since the last time I saw him. *cough2extracatscough*

Well that's it for now. I'll keep you posted on what happens tomorrow!

broom and hardwood or laminate floors, is NO fun...I have the solution tho...it's a dry mop..one of those "dust brooms" that looks like someone took a bunch of yarn and attached it to a long oval. works GREAT.. love ya...wish I could be looking at all these houses with ya
