If all works out, this will be our third house. We are being pretty picky since we know we won't live here forever and we want it to be good for resale. We can't just think about "us" and what we love. Location is key and lots of space. I have fallen in love with probably 5 houses already and watched them sell! :( Currently I am loving older homes with character!
The photos are horrible, I know! This house is at the top of my list. It's not overly large, but it will work. The outside isn't that cute but I know I can add curb appeal with landscaping so I am kinda up for the challenge. My favorite thing is the wood floors!!!! The house was built in 1940 and the original hardwood has been refinished. Also, all new windows!
That above room is a enclosed sunroom! We are thinking we'd like this as an office/sitting area. Our pets would love this room. It's a bonus area for us and still has 3 additional bedrooms and a finished basement. I need a space for a future nursery and guests. BUT, let's get real! The REAL reason I want a house is to FREAKIN decorate. I haven't painted a room since 2010! I am having withdrawls. I love painting rooms and picking out paint colors. Drooling over paint swatches!
So now we wait. I am sure we will get to look at homes soon, but I'm not sure. The whole problem for us is from our past. We had to do a short sale on our last house causing us to not be able to get a home mortgage for 2 years. Sadly, it's looking like that date is now going to be January of 2013! Our realtor tells us not to worry about it too much and that we can still make offers. So, here goes to the beginning of the emotional roller coaster that comes with buying a home. Should be interesting. I am scared and excited at the same time. *Wish me Luck* I can't wait to start painting! Moving sucks, but the happiness I will feel to get that key is all worth it.
