Ponzi and I have hit the housing market three times over the past couple of years, but it’s just now starting to favor buyers (“us”) over sellers (“them”). We’ve been working with Stan – who is quickly becoming the blogger’s choice for real estate agents in the Seattle area. Last night, I scribbled a list of personal home search guidelines:
Newer is Better – Classic charm is classy, so long as you donÃ¢â¬â¢t mind performing random updates throughout the years. Ã¢â¬ÅHome repairÃ¢â¬Â? is a given for any building, but I think the various problems weÃ¢â¬â¢ve experienced in our current rental house has made us a bit gunshy in wanting to buy a structure thatÃ¢â¬â¢s more than five years old.
I’ve shared nine other house hunt honing points inside the “new” Lockergnome Nexus (expect a separate post on that effort soon, as we’re looking for countless WordPress knowledgeers). Finding a house is… stressful.
