Now that Alpha has a new full time job we are finally house hunting! We have lived modestly, saved money, minimized debts and worked hard to earn/keep good credit. I am so pleased at all our hard work and have been looking forward to this for a long time!
Here is my “must have” list: at least 2 bedrooms, character, not in the ghetto. Yup, that’s it. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of things I would like our first home to have, but that is my MUST have list.
Here is my “would be nice” list: 3+ bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, laundry not in basement, garage, finished or finish-able basement, large lot with privacy, close to family and work, in a good school system (in case we cant/don’t want to home school as intended)
We will see how this goes! I’ll keep you updated along the way.
What did your “starter home” look like? How long did you live there? Why did you leave?
