Yes, we are finally house hunting. We decided that we had better start looking while housing prices are still low (an possibly going lower?). We have gone a few times to look around, some with our realtor and some without. If you have ever been house hunting, you know how exciting and frustrating it can be. I have to say, we are much pickier this time around. We know more of what we want and especially what we don't want. There is at least one house that we managed to stay in for approximately 20 seconds before turning around and walking back out the door. And that may even be exaggerating. Oh, and finding a great house... except for that one thing (whatever it is, small kitchen, no backyard, etc -- stuff that isn't easy to fix so that the house is JUST PERFECT). Yes, we are picky, but you know, we just started. Our standards may drop drastically in a few months when we "just want a house of our own" already. I can tell you how excited we are to start anew, but at the same time, not looking forward to moving -- again -- or the mortgage payment. I am pretty sure that no one is selling around here unless the bank is forcing them too, I mean, who is that dumb.. uh hem, anyway, our choices may be limited until the prices start to climb back up again. We'll see... there is nothing like an emotional roller coaster... we seem to like those around here.
