Itâ€™s going to kill me.
Seriously. House hunting in a new city is stressful. Especially when you have grand dreams (2 bed, 2 bath, hardwood floors, an updated kitchen, good lighting for photography, a backyard, a walkable community)â€¦ and not a lot of money to spend. Oh, and dogs. Which eliminates a lot of places. We might have to up our budget to get what we want?! But I donâ€™t want to â€“ I hate being under financial strain. Is it worth it to live where you want to?
We took a mid-morning break to grab a bite at Zada Janeâ€™s, which was super cute.
I got the Veggie Soup, which had tons of different beans and veggies in it. I was surprised that it was a little sweet instead of savory â€“ kind of weird, but still good.
Then, we drove around several neighborhoods for a few hours and popped into several homes and duplexes. I saw one I liked, but itâ€™s a one bedroom and older, so there isnâ€™t a lot of closet space.
We stopped for Lunch #2 at Brueggerâ€™s along East Boulevard (where the Husbandâ€™s practice will be). We definitely needed a break â€“ and they had free Wi-Fi! Wahhoo! 🙂
I got a bagel, hummus, and veggie sandwich:
OKâ€¦ Back to the hunt. Weâ€™re meeting a realtor at another spot in 5 minutes!
What are your â€˜requirementsâ€™ for a place? What are your â€˜nice-to-havesâ€™?
