Be Vewy Vewy Quiet, We Be Hunting Howses

May 13, 2004

The pictures from our second house hunting experience are up.

Here are the listings if you want to see them.

We had the realtor by our house on Tuesday to take a look at the place and to get our listing put together.  We are going to list the place for $64,500.  At that price it is priced to move because the last two places were listed for a bit more than that.  Hopefully we get a lot of lookers and offers.  Once those are coming in we will feel a lot better about making an offer on a house (once we find one we like...).  It's looking like we aren't going to replace the carpet, but I think we are going to replace the linoleum.  I will post pictures of any improvements we make.  Heather and I are also considering painting the bathroom.  This home buying and selling stuff is really exhausting...

I've started looking up houses myself on ZipRealty, and I've found some nice places that I'm not sure why our realtor hasn't been showing us.  I'm sending her the information on them so that we can look at the houses.  The real estate market in Phoenix is pretty active, it seems that every time I find a house that I want to check out it is sold by the time we get a chance to look.  For this reason, we are going to try to start looking at houses on Friday afternoons.  I normally get every other Friday off at work, and instead I'm going to work a half day every Friday.  Heather normally works for half a day on Fridays.

Wish us luck, and if you're in the market for a one bedroom condominium in Tempe right down the street from ASU, come check out our place.
