The hunt

The town is truly lovely.

The real estate is limited. Not a lot on the market right now. At least, not in my price range. It seems that I can buy a gigantic home or a very small one. There doesn't seem to be much in between on the market.

Today is the last day out with the realtor.

At least I'm getting a good idea of where I'd want to live, and I can make a better decision if I don't happen to be able to find the right house on this trip.

A little discouraged, but we'll keep on keepin' on!

  3. Go with the gigantic one. Kids grow, y'know!

    And ditto all the encouraging words from everyone else. Every time I've had to do this, it's been "no, no, no, no, PERFECT" like some twisted real estate version of Duck, Duck, Goose.

  4. We found the same thing where we live. Gigantic (prices and all) or very tiny or +100 years old (but still with gigantic prices!).

    Good luck--I hope the right one comes along soon.

  7. You'll find something, sometimes, when we least expect it, the house we choose is not the one we initially wanted... Good luck!

  10. Michigan is a tough market right now, but you'll find something because that's where you're meant to be! (name of town again?)

  12. Just because no one else has said it: you could rent for a few months in the area you like and make sure you like it and you'll find the house the moment it hits the market . . . I know, 3 kids and unpacking and repacking doesn't sound fun, but it might just work! Regardless, happy house hunting!

  14. Wherever you land, best of luck! My town is full of lots of pink-hued stucco homes. Not many Victorian beauties or Craftsman charm. But there's a heart here people often miss. Luckily, those who look close enough will find it. ;)

  17. I came to Utah by myself when my husband was finishing up grad school in LA and I saw 17 houses in 4 days. I was exhausted by the end, but that first once over is so crucial. Best of luck!

  18. Have you thought about contacting people from the various wards or is there just one ward in the area you are looking?
