house-hunting: part 2 of 5000 [Nov. 20th, 2007|11:01 am]

So we've been emailing back and forth with our buying agent (thanks onefishclappin!) and she sent us a list of houses to look over. Observations:

- It looks like our price range is indeed reasonable.
- The locations of the houses are clustered in a few places: near 183 north of where it hits mopac, east of mopac south of 183, and a few out on 360 (too far away) and near parmer (too far north for my liking but possibly doable)
- It's kinda hard to get a good feel from a house from a bunch of words and a few pictures.

There are some promising candidates on the list but overall it's good to know that we can afford a house near where we want to live. I suppose we'll start touring houses next week or so.

Remember (before they decided to just build on our lot) when we went around looking at all those houses? Remember the one with lemonade and brownies? Good times. You should get a house that comes with lemonade and brownies.

Sorry! Although I do like the verticalness of your current house :-)

Really? I admit I do like their house in general, but I"m not sure I'd say specifically for the verticalness. Although from a "the world is overpopulated, cities overcrowded and sprawl sucks" perspective, then such a smaller footprint is nice.

You should totally buy Kurt's house.
