This afternoon we went to our very first open house! We aren't planning to buy for a few months but in all honesty I've been looking online for over a year [maybe two].
Recently I convinced James to drive around with me one Saturday and look at the neighborhoods and houses we thought we'd like to live in. And last weekend, I suggested that we start going to open houses. Just to get more of an idea of what we can get within our budget. I was pleasantly surprised that he thought it was a great idea! Woo hoo!
So today we went to a house and weren't too impressed. I think it's a little overpriced for how outdated it is. We'd have to replace all the flooring [half yucky carpet, half yucky linoleum].
We prefer one story but are open to two [which this house is].
I liked the size of the backyard.
Overall this house is fine, but we think we can find a better fit. It just wasn't completely us. We loved being able to check it out and we'll definitely be going to lots more open houses in the coming months!
