Husband and I have finally taken the plunge and we are officially house hunting.
It's really exciting and scary at the same time. At this point, we're taking it slow and compiling a list of likes and dislikes in the houses we see.
On our wish list:
— 3 bedrooms (or more if it's within the budget)
— decent yard space
— a spacious kitchen/space to entertain
— significant storage/closets
That said, what if a house isn't the way to go at this point? Husband is still unsure about the work situation for next September, and it would be great to keep saving money. What do you think about condos? I've talked to friends who have been met with huge unexpected fees, and I've also chatted with others who praise the benefits of home ownership without the hassles of maintenance.
Calling all experienced house hunters out there — what are the first features and flaws you look for when viewing a potential new home?
