Hide and Seek

Well...I've been looking at townhouses after work for a couple of weeks now.  I've looked at so many! 
It really is hard work, I'm set on where I want to live down to the very neighborhood and there are only 5 models of townhouses.  It seems though that only 1 model ever goes up for sale, I've probably seen 10 houses by now and 7 were the same model.

I looked at 2 on Sunday, one isn't on the market yet and the other went up on Sunday.  I really like them both, I may have only like the second because it was a model I hadn't seen yet.  I decided to put an offer on the first one!  It's in very good condition (but we are getting an inspection if my offer is accepted), and move in ready. If I do get it there are a ton of things I want to do though, mostly painting, and also knocking out a wall between the kitchen and dining/living room.

I would love to upload a picture of the model for you all, but my printer's wireless isn't working and neither are my laptops usbs ports...  BUT once I get that fixed-lots of photos!

Anyone have any house searching stories for me?

until next time,

Welcome to Maggie's House!  

I'm Maggie and I don't own a house...I currently rent a one bedroom apartment.  I am looking for my house and hope to find it and move in by August!  

I thought it might be fun to document the process of finding my home and making it my own; we'll see how this goes... In addition to to looking for a house I also have a full time job, 2 part time jobs (in different seasons!), and I'm in school for my teacher's licensure (which means at some point I'll have to quit my full time job and work for free as student teacher).

Living with me in the apartment are my 2 buddies Bunter and Wimsey.

Until next time!
