    I'm soooooooooo excited!! I really seriously hate moving but this time I don't have to find something that'll do. I get to have plenty of time and find a house that's just right and buy it!! First house hunting expedition will be the 23rd and 24th!! We're even pre-approved and I have a list from the realtor.

    Have fun and good luck on finding your dream home. Remember to have enough room for a sewing room.

    Congratulations! We are trying to sell our house, so we can buy one that fits my frame and fabric. LOL. We have found the PERFECT house, but need to sell this one before we can buy that one, so we are just waiting with bated breath and hoping someone loves our house as much as we do- soon!

    I love looking at houses. It's always fascinating to me.

    That's so nice. Where will you be looking to buy? Now's the time everybody keeps saying. Good luck. Take your time and you'll know the house when you can't stop thinking about where all your things will go!!
    That's how we were when we found our house!! I have two sewing rooms--and they were the first ones to get done. Where I used to live I had a little tiny corner in the basement for 14 years!! So have fun and get your dream home that you want to stay there till your old!!!
    I told my hubby that the only way I leave her is when they carry out my cold dead body!!!

    We'll be looking in Liberal Kansas. It's about 40 miles away from hubby's work. The *first* thing I'm looking at is space for a good size sewing room!!

    This is good advise. Keep in mind the insurance and taxes. Hope all with goes well the home hunting.

    I'll tell you what I told my kids to do.

    First, go to that house and look at the neighborhood at all hours of the day and well into the night. Go there on weekends and listen and look at the kids.

    THEN go to the police department and ask if that is a good neighborhood, and if they've had many calls from that area and what they were for. Drugs you don't want in your back yard, it will only get worse as time goes on.

    Meet some of the neighbors BEFORE you sign any thing at all. Ask what they think of the neighborhood and would they buy there again.

    Drive around several streets, look at how all the houses are being maintained.

    Then when everything checks out, you can sign and move into your dream home.
    Good luck.
