Today we went looking at homes again, this time a few more than usual…..5 in all, though I don’t count one of them because it was our agent’s listing and 1)it was out of our price range and 2)it wasn’t in our school district. The first home had a yard that was not a hill going up, or going down, but rather slanted left to right. The indoors was very nice, but seemed a bit tight. Apparently the people living there had quite a bit of money, as they put over $180K into upgrades. And from the pictures in their home, they looked as if they were in their mid-20’s. Must be nice.
The 2nd home we saw was quite nice in a great neighborhood. It was a foreclosure, so it probably needed a few repairs. But it definitely had the room. The problem? The yard again. The backyard was a disaster. You had to walk up a flight of stairs only to find trees and rubbish.
The 3rd home was a split level contemporary. It had some charms, but was hard to view with the decor, etc. And it was in a neighborhood with nothing but contemporaries, which are not are favorites. But at the right price, this could be in contention.
The last home was in a very nice setting on the corner of cul-de-sac, but it was just too tight inside. We saw a similar one months ago in Carriage Station in Roswell. I liked that one more honestly, but I remember it was hard to get in to the basement. You had to contort your body around the railing on the stairs.
Last night I forgot to blog. I guess I am losing steam.
