My husband and I are in the process of looking for our first house. It sounds pretty straight forward but that's where you'd be mistaken. We are planning on living in this house for at least five years, more like seven or eight. We are also planning on starting a family in the next four or five years. So whatever house we buy is the house that our baby is going to learn to walk, the street we live on is where they will learn to ride a bike and the area we are located in will determine where they go to kindergarten. Talk about a lot of pressure for a first home! I keep finding these wonderful looking houses and then I will go to familywatchdog.us and learn that six or seven convicted child predators live around the corner. When I manage to find a great house not near any perverts it's something insane like half a million dollars for a bungalow. We found a house that appears to be perfect as far as location, price and quality go and we are scheduled to do a walk through with the real estate agent on Tuesday. I really really hope this goes well and that it looks the same in person as it does on the internet! We are so ready to be home owners!
