HOUSE HUNTING- FOR DUMMIES!
HOUSE HUNTING: for DUMMIES!
OMG--IT'S THE BEST!!
Went House Hunting today and had a Blast!
As you drive down a street, their are Houses on the left and the right!! I didn't know it would be so easy. And we found out that usually the houses on the right are even numbered, and the left-Odd. Odd- don't you think.
We also learned that only SOME are for sale, and this turned out to be important. When we first started we just walked up to several we liked, knocked and asked if we could see their house. It turns out people don't generally like that; especially if it's not FOR SALE!!
So color me stupid and chalk that one up to experience!
Ha Ha Ha!!
Also, the Governors Mansion proved to be a little "OFF LIMITS" to the general public as a rule! Hey--we just wanted to see what we COULD NOT afford, as a comparison. I mean--you can look at expensive jewelery and not intend to buy it! Sheesh. And she was just sworn in Yesterday. I don't know about SWEARING IN A GOVERNOR-or any elected official for that matter.
I mean: why use bad language! "Do you-Dammit, solemnly friggin Swear, to Uphold the Damn Office????"
"Hell, Yes!" etc.
There just is no place for that!
Anyway--we are going back out again tomorrow- armed with a FOR SALE MAP, thus saving a LOT of time and Gas Money! I mean we could almost have put a down payment on the sucker just in Gas Money!
Well--gotta go get a good nights sleep as I want to be sharp negotiating with these people called Realtors. Should call them Un-Real-tors with the prices they are asking for some of these places. I think I must have added two extra zeros or forgot a decimal point when i typed in 100,000.00- 150,000.00!
Turns out that SMALL MISTAKE makes a BIG difference in the houses you can look at! And I get to meet a Guy with the Money- named Earnest--and there is something to do with a funny shaped Bird--called an S- Crow!
OK--I'll report back later! Wish us well!
