So yeah, my attention span is a bit scattered this we- oh! Shiny!
I've had my eye on this one for about a month now. It's small (perhaps the size of my house now, maybe even a bit smaller), but it has a drive-under garage with room for three cars and then some, plus the two-car garage up top. Plus, it's very close by, within walking distance of the kidlet's school, in a very nice neighborhood, and it's cheap. I have visions of putting the money I 'save' on this one into improvements, like all hardwood floors, new cabinetry, improvements to the master bathroom, landscaping, and some sort of huge porch out front, and thereby getting my own little dream house. It really does need some work, though, and it has that crappy siding that my current house has. Blech.
My agent sent me this one last night, and I just about wet my panties. A brick ranch on a large yet low-maintenance yard, with a very nicely updated kitchen and hardwoods... I sort of have a thing for a nice brick ranch. A bit larger than what I'm in now, plus word has it you could park four cars down below, because the garage joins up with the basement. This one's also pretty cheap, at about $10k more than Candidate #1, but would entail me moving a little south, closer to the city (could be a good thing) in a less-known neighborhood (possibly a bad thing) a couple of miles outside the boy's school district (entails a morning and evening drive for me on 'my' weeks). Plus I haven't seen it yet and am going solely off the pictures, so who knows.
There are a few other candidates, but these are the ones I'm excited about. But not *too* excited about, lest these buyers flake out like the last one did.
In other news, stepdad and I took our motorcycles to Barber Motorsports Museum last weekend. Click on this picture to see many more:
