Here is my question: How do you pick a house?
Everyone seems to tell me to "Wait for the perfect house- it will come."
But I don't think it will.
My perfect house is on a lake, with mountain views, mature trees that grow on their own, and is in some magical land that is close to both MN and CO. I don't think I will ever find my perfect house- and even if I did- I am pretty sure we could not afford it.
So, what level of perfection are we looking for here?
I found a house that I quite like (Chris will see it this weekend- I went out looking without him to weed out the "no way" houses yesterday). The layout is pretty much perfect. Its in a great neighborhood. In our price range.
But I wish it had a bigger yard, was in a cul-de-sac, and had a formal dining room (not that we have a table to put in there- but I would like to have one).
How perfect is perfect?
