    I think this house is beautiful! I think a lot of new homes look plain and bare because no one lives there yet. Once you move in you’ll definitely be able to make it your own 🙂

    @Mrs_Amanda:  

    Honestly, you shouldn’t buy a house based on how nice other people think it looks.  It doesn’t really matter what anyone here thinks, you’re the one who has to live in it.  Where’s it located, how good is the price, have you had it inspected for any problems, etc?

    “I am a normal house located somewhere suburban in the US about one to two hours away from a large metropolis!” lol 🙂

    I would say it doesn’t seem to have very much character to me, but doesn’t stand out in an ugly way, either. And it definitely needs landscaping.

    I think it’s a little “builder beige”, but you can make it more homey. 

    My only question if you do plan on having kids while living there is are you comfortable with sleeping on a separate floor than them?  Master on main tends to be a selling feature to baby boomers who appreciate not “having” to go upstairs for anything, but most parents of young children prefer their rooms to be closer.

    This home seems to have a lot to offer you.

     With a little love and some fresh paint that this house could look great.

    The front garden has great potential.  It could look amazing

    @Mrs_Amanda:  I truly believe that any house is worth looking at and considering. But I voted “other” because I have no idea what you will prioritize in the house hunting process. Everyone has different needs and wants.

    For us, I nearly passed over the home we ended up in because it didn’t look like much in the photos and the asking price was crazy high for the way it appeared. But when I got here, I knew where all the money was going into. It wasn’t decor. Anyone can change carpet or cabinets or counters or even appliances. But the location was beyond amazing, and the place was just immaculately maintained over the years despite its age. I mean top of the line windows, furnace, heater, baseboard etc. It didn’t have stainless steel or high end appearance. But it was definitely a place of quality over quantity and effiency over appearance. I knew I had to have it when the home inspector walked around with his mouth wide open trying to ding the sellers on something but falling short. Turns out the seller worked in renovations and maintenance, so he had connections to make all these great improvements… But others may have said that a rancher that’s as old as our home was out of the question because of size or age alone.

    Make a list of things that matter most to you, ideally ranked in order of priority. For every house you see give a numerical value for each of those factors and add up the total. You might want to weigh the most important factors slightly more somehow. And whichever home gets the highest total score will probably be the best fit for you. Good luck!

    Too small of kitchen way to small for my taste is what it screams to me

    It seems nice but the kitchen is a little disappointing in comparison to everything else but if a large kitchen isn’t a priortiy, it’s a very nice house!

    I think it’s a nice blank slate to work with.

    This is a beautiful house, especially the exterior (I’m a fan of brick). 

    What I would want to change is all of the carpet and tile (except tile in bathrooms) to the same gorgeous hardwood floors that are in the rest of the house.  I also prefer an open concept kitchen, but this house is still very nice.

    I love it! It looks gorgeous to me, love that the layout looks relatively open. Love the big windows in the dining room, I am a sucker for natural light! Lawn definitely needs TLC but that’s the only thing that jumps out to me as a negative in these pics!

    And I would die for a walk in closet and whirlpool tub!
