We are taking the plunge. With homes between 10 and 20k below market value and low interest rates starting to climb, we decided to get a regular house.
Have been combing the internet for houses we might like. Did you know if you go to Google Maps and type in the street address of a home you know is for sale it will show a box that asks if you want to see all the homes for sale in that area.
Then you can view them through satellite and street mode. This is great for seeing if a yard is fenced, if the rest of the neighborhood is a dump, etc.
We toured several areas today that we like the homes in. Now have to find a decent realtor to arrange showings, negotiate price etc. This is work.
It's very exciting for all the work going into this. Really not looking forward to moving but have already started "landscaping" my new yard. Would be great if we could find a place that would let us have chickens ;-)
So, it's off to my real job and then back to the great house hunt mid-week.
