Do you watch the HGTV show, House Hunters? Do you try to figure out which of the three houses the buyers are going to pick, before it is announced?
While watching the show, you hear what they are looking for, what they might have to compromise on, what each house has or doesn't have.
I have gotten pretty good at guessing which one they will pick, but I have been surprised a few times.
So, while I am waiting to hear from the sellers of the house we picked, to see if they will make some repairs or not, I thought we could play House Hunters. I will show you three of the houses that we have seen. One of them is the house we made the offer on. I will tell you the pros and cons of each one and show you a couple of inside photos too. Can you guess which one is the house we picked?
House one is a condo that is downtown. The pros are...no yard work or outside maintenance, you can walk to downtown shops and restaurants, brand new. The cons are...no place for a garden, lack of privacy.
House number two is about 10 minutes to downtown in a golf course community. The pros are....light and bright, two master suites, great living room with soaring ceilings and rock fireplace. The cons are, no formal dining room, though there is an informal dining area off the kitchen, small back yard.
House number three is about 5 minutes to downtown in a gated mountain community. The pros....light and bright, fireplace in great room, formal dining room and nice sized master bedroom. The cons...sloping front yard, carpet needs to be replaced with hardwood, small back yard.
So which one do you think we picked? I promise to let you know which house we picked in my next post and whether or not we are able to proceed with the sale.
