I think by now it's pretty well known that I do not like advice.
I don't mind giving YOU advice, but that's another story.
I mentioned before that we are hoping to be in a house by Christmas right?
I know I have.
We went into the bank and were pre approved for a home loan.
To make it even better we qualify for the 'first time buyers' program, so we can get in with little to no down payment.
It's so very very surreal.
I mean you dream of buying a house, but when it's actually time....
it's almost like we are playing pretend.
Searching for homes.
Seeing what we like and don't like.
It's a lot to think about.
Last saturday was spent actually looking at houses.
We saw this one in Draper.
I. Was. In. LOVE.
I love Draper.
I love the river rock and stucco.
I love the park across the street.
I loved the master bed and bath.
I hated the kitchen.
Not because I didn't like the colors, cabinents, or flooring.
It was like a closet.
And then I realized it had no dining room either.
We had to pass on it.
If you look at the bottom left area of the picture
you will see the 'bar' you could sit one kid at.
I know it will take a long time to find what we want.
This market in our price range is chuck full of short sales.
Which can be good and bad.
I know why so don't bother explaining to to me.
