Most of us, at some point in our lives, will endure shopping for a home. I say ‘endure’ because it’s like training for an Olympic event. Constantly perusing listings on-line and arranging viewings with your realtor only to be disappointed. We’ve been at it for over a year and I’m mentally preparing myself for another kick at the can.
Not too many people list their homes for sale during the winter months in the ‘Great White North’. Spring will bring fresh green leaves, newly planted gardens and hopefully a whole bunch of new home listings too. For now, it’s still snowing. It snowed yesterday. It snowed the day before. Well, you get the picture. If not, here’s a little taste of winter from my point of view.
Since we aren’t house shopping in Edmonton at this time of year, why not join me on a little California real estate tour. While in San Diego, we cycled around to admire the beautiful homes and their landscaping. I wanted to live in almost every single home and took photo’s of some of my favourites. I’ve decided that I love: front perimeter fencing, a front porch and the cottage vibe. All soooooo very cute AND pricey. Luckily, looking is absolutely free 🙂
What’s fun about looking at real estate on a holiday, is you can go casual. Just hop on a bike and stop wherever you want, no commitment makes it easy breezy.
Nothing is more welcoming than some lovely landscaping to wander through on your way to a beautiful covered porch.
I’ve saved my two favourites for last. This little California doll house has Boomdee written all over it. Just add a faithful friend waiting at the door and I’m in the perfect home.
Do you have any tips for house hunting?
