HOUSE HUNTING 101

What if any House Hunting tips do you have?

We are going to buy-(Lord Willing), soon, and it is daunting to say the least in looking at and deciding on what will probably be our RETIREMENT HOME!!!

You get to drive a New Car--and Boy, that 8 minute drive the dealer let's you take really tells you a lot about a major purchade right???  LOL.

Well, in buying a House there are so many things to consider besides the OBVIOUS!

WHY DON'T YOU GET TO SPEND A FEW NIGHTS IN THE BIGGEST PURCHASE YOU WILL EVER MAKE, TO TRY OUT SOME SIMPLE THINGS?

Like the Flush & Scream Factor: When I flush in the New House- will she scream in the shower because all the hot water cuts off???

Traffic patterns.....we know when and where to go after 10 years here and 30 in this town. How about the new place?

NOISE FACTOR--PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES....---I'M JUST SAYIN'!

CAN I WATCH AN ACTION ADVENTURE MOVIE IN SURROUND SOUND WHILE SHE WATCHES DESPERATE BONES HOUSE CSI: (NAME A CITY) IN THE BEDROOM???

I know you can see electric bills--but how COMFORTABLE is the House?

WHAT ARE SOME TIPS YOU HAVE THAT MUST BE ANSWERED BEFORE YOU BUY?

I know it will ultimately come down to weighing all these factors, and compromising on some: but you do need to make a smart decision in this process!

THANKS!
