jimmy and i met with our relator yesterday for the first time to go look at houses. see, we're not completely set on buying, but we're looking in the event that we find something we love for cheap and to possibly qualify for the first time homeowners $8000 tax credit! woot! so we went out yesterday, looking at single family homes which are few and far between in our price range. it was strange to go in some that were short sales and had people living in them . . . some with illegal basement apartments. weird. BUT we came to this house and immediately fell in love with the hideous vintage "charm." So ugly I know, but I love it!!!
It's a fabulous price in a good (hear residential=boring) neighborhood. i love it. more to come, i'm sure!
