Real Life House Hunters

Hey Everyone! Well most people who know me know that I love HGTV. House Hunters is one of my favorite shows so I figured I would do a blog with our own house hunting adventure. Now the pictures aren't too great but you get the idea. So I want you to make a guess just like the real show if you have seen it as to which one you think we'll get, etc. If you're not sure how this works you can catch it on HGTV most of the time haha! So here goes....

House #1
So here is the deal with this house. It is foreclosed. Wayyyyy more house than we could ever afford. But since it is a foreclosure it is in our price range although at the very top. Now the price that we want to offer is pretty set, we don't have much room to go over it, and we would have to offer well under their asking price. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, bonus room, 2 car garage, and a fenced in back yard. Although this house is on a hill and so the backyard is pretty uneven. We aren't crazy about the look of the house because we want a house with more character and this one blends in to the rest of the neighborhood. It needs a lot of updating on the inside since it was left as is.

House #2
We love the look of this house much more, the picture is a little dull, but you kind of get the idea. This house is extremely well kept. We love pretty much everything about it. 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, nice flooring, nothing in the inside would have to be updated. It also has a fenced in backyard with a matching shed in the back. This house is exactly what we want to pay, and is move in ready. We like the neighborhood and love that it has a front porch swing. We don't like that the driveway is small, also the kitchen is smaller than we would have wanted and we will have to add a pantry. The extra 2 bedrooms are a little small but would definitely work.

Ok so all 3 of you who read this and actually comment leave us with your guess and we'll let you know which one we picked! :) P.S. if you read this and never comment now is your golden opportunity, leave us some love
