Can you all believe that it's the last day in July?!?!?! Where did the summer go? Yes, there's still a month left, but my summer vacation ends mid August. That means only 2 1/2 weeks left!
Plus, it's my birthday month! WOOT WOOT!!! I'm counting down to the 13th. I'm still not sure what I want to do on the day. I'm thinking of keeping it low key and baking and having Honey cook for me. We'll see.
Anyway, today I decided to go online and window shop for homes. We think we've narrowed our location down to Connecticut, mostly because of my job. I REALLY need to cut down on my commute time, so right now that seems like the best option.
We also still plan on renting a place first ( we've also been looking at apartments and rental homes) but I want to keep the house buying energy flowing at all times. I really am a believer of the Law of Attraction, so we're putting home buying energy into the universe at all times!
Here are the top 6 houses that I looked at today. It's funny, some of them are not lookers in the curb appeal area but were super cute inside. Then, some were amazing outside and stunk inside...sigh. I guess that's house hunting for you. These are some of the ones I saw potential in... click the link to go to the listings. You know, in case you're looking too... Oh and not all are Capes!!!
I love this 1948 house because even though everything has been updated (as with all of the older homes I've looked at) I don't think it would take much to put a 50s spin on it.
Ok...so this one isn't a beauty outside but...It has a BREAKFAST NOOK!!!!!!!! LOVE! I have a soft spot for breakfast nooks. It also has some really nice built in cabinets that I like too.
This bungalow, built in 1925, has the cutest little white fence! I also love the mudroom. The rest of the house is decent, nothing extravagant but its reasonably priced. That means it could leave a heck of a renovation budget!!
Here is a 1940's Colonial. I usually don't like Colonials but this one is cute. The fireplace, kitchen and deck are all pluses for me.
Here is a Cape Cod. I love the outside (Honey hates the pointy top) but I'm not thrilled about the inside of it. Well, most of it is workable, but the kitchen is a deal breaker. I love the homey feel of the house though. With a little vintage tune up to the decor it could be a nice home. But...the kitchen definitely needs an overhaul.
I love this 1915 Cape!!!! There isn't much I would change about it other than paint colors. The backyard is great!
Here is a bonus because it was Honey's favorite. The outside of this 1930s Colonial is definitely stunning! And the inside is just as beautiful (if you can imagine that all of the wood paneling and cabinets in the kitchen are gone and replaced with pretty ones).
Well, that's that! I just wanted to share my findings with you guys and give an update on moving front.
I hope you are having a great last day of July!!! August is sure to be a blast!!!
