The Great House Search

Well, we’re thinking about moving.  Church is moving, I’d like to be closer to work, our friends and family are moving, and eventually, it’ll be too small.  This could be a long process, so we want to start early.  If anyone knows of any nice homes in the area up for sale, let me know.

Man, it’s so stressful.  I am doing so much pre-planning and budget crunching so I know what we can and should afford.  If we all bought the houses the lenders say we can, we’d all foreclose.

We’ve found a very nice realtor that relates well to Lael.  She’s been a teacher, and has little kids.  She was kind enough to watch Brielle tonight at the properties while Lael and I perused as best we could.  We started tonight at the top of what we want to buy, and saw one we really liked, but will probably be out of comfortable reach.  We don’t want to be stretched to get into a nice home, but the problem is, this will be a 10-15 year home, so we don’t want to get something too small.  So we’re still looking.  We looked at three, one is awesome, but probably priced where it should be and is right on the edge of comfortable.  One was overpriced and needed a lot of work, and the third was really nice with 5 bedrooms, but had a tiny kitchen.

We don’t even have our house listed, but we know what we would list it for, so if anyone is interested, drop me a line.  It would be great for three or four guys to move in together and share a payment.  Utilities are awesome, it’s a three bedroom, 1.75 bath, finished basement, water softener, 2 car garage, cathedral ceiling, etc.  Appliances would probably be included.  About 1400 SF finished, 960SF main level, 420SF basement, utility area isn’t finished.  Jimtown schools, at the back of the subdivision, low taxes, no neighbors behind the house.

    We are looking in the Elkhart/Goshen area. That’s where I work, most of our friends and family are, and where are church is moving too. We are looking mostly in Goshen right now. Taxes seem to be more reasonable.
