Here’s how our first day of house hunting went:
House #1: Cute house in a cute neighborhood with a huge backyard. The backyard was so big that it had a half basketball court in it and it STILL looked huge. I don’t know if the huge backyard is a positive or negative. We have two huge dogs and there’s no way we could fence the whole thing. This was Kenny’s favorite house.
House #2: This was my favorite one. The house was just adorable but the backyard was tiny. We’re talking teeny tiny. Like, maybe too small for our dogs tiny.
House #3: It was okay. Just okay.
House #4: This was Eric’s favorite. The house was really cute BUT it’s two houses off of a big street so that was kind of the deal breaker for me.
House #5: This one was a cape cod (like our current house), which I love. It was in a great neighborhood but everything on the inside would need to be updated (carpet, flooring, countertops, etc). I don’t know that we want to do that much work on our next house.
I know we’ll eventually walk into a house and just know it’s what we want – I just hope it’s sooner than later.
