    I think we looked at 4 or 5.  Our realtor was really good at filtering what we truly wanted and only showing us things that met our list.

    We looked in a subdivision that was going to start construction, we saw five model homes and chose one. We will be taking possession of our house one week before we get married. But we will only be moving in when we get back from our honeymoon

    We saw 12! We put a bid in on one early in the process but were rejected. Thank goodness because the house we ended up bidding on/ making settlement on in a few weeks (!!!) was everything we imagined and more! The house search and buying process is not fun by any means though, it’s exhausting and I wanted to barf every day we looked.

    Only 1! My family owned the house and basically sold it to us at cost. It’s in a great location, but a little dated. Sometimes I wish we looked around first, but we are definitely happy where we’re at.
