Feels Like the First Time

Well, it's offical.  JEGs and I have decided to loose our virginity. 

Our property virginity, that is.  (where was your mind, you dirty bird?)
We are offically house hunting

This place looks quaint.  Think it is in our price range?

 

This is our absolute must have list:
3 bedrooms
1 bathroom (at least.  I don't do port-a-potties)
Garage or room to build a garage
Parking for 3 cars (whether it be driveway or street parking)
No Townhouses or Condos.

We are looking in our general area that we live now (King of Prussia, Blue Bell, Plymouth Meeting, East Norriton).  Access to the Pennsylvania Turnpike is clutch.

We've got a great real estate agent, Kim, on our side.  She has promised to be gentle .

Now, as anyone who has ever house hunted before knows, this will not happen overnight.  I have made a promise to not sugar-coat this experience for you guys.  I plan to show you every promising property and (god forbid) every crushing blow.

Alrighty then.. let's start the auditions for Falconhead Cottage!

Always & Forever,
  ME

Oh this oughta be good! There's nothing as exhilerating as house hunting. Finding the perfect listing online and having your heart race until your realtor gets you in the door...it's insane.

how exciting! your wishlist is short! you should have no problem finding it! are you looking for a fixer-upper or more move in ready?

I'm so glad you're doing this. We're taking the plunge sometime this year too and I know nothing about the process!

Ooh Vee has inspired me to possibly write my own blog for those first timers just starting out who know nothing about the process. Maybe a first time home buyers guide for dummies, with a sarcastic twinge to it.

ps - I am looking fwd to installment number two, including photos of the basement of Tabak ;)

Good luck in your house hunting. We love ours! I love the area in the country that you are choosing, I grew up there.
