  • I moved here nearly 17 years ago as a renter. I only planned on staying for a couple of years. Little did I know that I would end up marrying my landlord.

  • this last one, purchased in December....about 20. it was a quick sale, quick move, and no time to play, that we've lived in it 4 1/2mos, we're giving it another 2yrs, and moving to one we've actually had time to search out. (we moved from the other side of the state, and didn't know the area/neighborhoods, etc.)

  • We built our home, so we didn't look at any homes. We did look at several plans for homes.

  • Several. I didn't think we'd find one to buy as every one we looked at had tons of problems. We wouldn't have minded a fixer upper but the owners wanted between $90,000 and $150,000 for houses we would have had to work on for quite while just to live in.

  • TONS online. I mean, probably over 100. Actual home visits, maybe 20. Our realtors were VERY good and knew us well enough to know if something was worth taking a trip for.

  • Probably 15 or so

  • We haven't bought ours yet. We've seen several dozen on line and we've looked at ten or twelve in real life...
