House Hunting

The search goes on. Carey and I are very particular, but we've come up with a list of particulars for the house we'd like.

  • Something in regions 5, 6, or 7 (Millcreek school district)
  • Close to Walnut Creek Middle School is preferred
  • One- or Two-Story; No split-levels
  • An open floor plan
  • $160k to $200k
  • No pool and yard size doesn't matter much
  • Three bedrooms, two bathrooms
  • Basement (ideally, one that's "finishable" or already finished)
  • Move in condition - no fixer-uppers

Very, very, very few of the houses we've seen meet our criteria, but we're just now getting into the season in which houses go on the market. So, we remain hopeful. We just want to get things settled by August so that we can move in before Carey begins her job in the fall.
