So exciting!  We went to houses together since it’s possible that there might be problems that you won’t notice at first with the house until there is an inspection but hopefully he will see anything major beforehand!

Thats so exciting!!!

Personally, I loved looking at houses together. It was so fun talking about what we liked and didnt like about each house. It was a new experience for both of us. I walked into our current home and apparently my eyes lit up and I was bouncing around screaming about how much I love it…..my boyfriend turned to our realtor and said “I guess this is the one”. And the PP is right, even if the house is brand new the inspector will find problems with it.

Good luck!!

Ya, with your schedule it sounds like it makes sense. And when you guys have the choices narrowed down, its the perfect excuse for one of you to take a day off from work and look at them together 🙂

One of the houses we looked at we walked down to the basement and there was about 5″ of water covering the floor. The other realtor said she had no idea what happened, but “its an easy fix”. Umm, no thanks. The same house also had no kitchen. It wasn’t a short sale or a foreclosure but for some reason there were no cabinets or appliances?!! It was also the most expensive house we looked at.

@Bostongrl25: There’s a salesperson for you!  The appliances and cabinets wereprobably gone because the people who owned it that were being forcelosed on stripped the place before they left.  It’s actually common in foreclosures.

That is very exciting! I would never be able to let Darling Husband do this alone because I am the controlling one but its awesome that you can do that if it takes stress off of you!

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: Haha  I know right?! It wasn’t a foreclosure though, which was why it was so odd. The owner of the house had actually passed away months earlier. The house was left to the kids and I assume the kids took them down for some reason. Either way, the place was just a disaster. It was actually sort of sad.

@Bostongrl25: Wow that is strange.  I guess they thought they could make money off them or something?  Nuts!
