Not the house for us

All of us, including our realtor, really wanted the house we saw today to be the right house for us. We went in with high hopes but pretty much as soon as we walked through the door we knew it wasn't right for us.

We loved the kitchen and living area as well as the deck and the bathrooms. The house had high ceilings, which was lovely as well. We didn't like the fireplace that was between the living room and master bedroom because you could see from one into the other - which means that light from one would go into the other.

The bedrooms were also on the small side. They were almost right but just a bit on the small side. Plus, while the basement was finished, there was no real place to put a sewing area.

The real problem is that to make the house perfect for us, we'd need to change every room somehow. All the carpet needs to be changed, walls need to be put up in the basement, that fireplace needs to be removed... basically, the house isn't move-in ready. And we want a move-in ready house, even if that costs us more.

Don't settle or you will regret it. Wait for one you really like to come along.
