House Hunters... Trip 3

So, I have to start off with an apology. I failed to post the pictures from our most recent House Hunters trip on Tuesday. This was a pretty exciting trip... more on that in a few moments.

But first, we visited a town home in Elburn. Of the town homes that we've seen, this was the first town home that we liked. When you look out that front window, you see trees... not another unit. I like that. (Sorry I forgot to take an outside picture.) This town home also had a very open floor plan. But the upstairs bathroom is open to both bedrooms and we really didn't like that too much.

The second house that we saw was just around the corner in Elburn. It was pretty cool. It's an older house, but the owner has been working pretty hard to renovate it.

House number 12 (overall - 3rd for the day) was the exciting point. This one story, ranch in North Aurora was the first time since we've been looking that my lovely wife used the word "like" in reference to a house!!!!!!!! The inside is pretty up-to-date and it's a very cool layout. The only downside that I could see, aside from the price (which is about $10,000 higher than we would like), is that it doesn't have a basement. But it does have a fairly good sized family room and an attached garage. The backyard is narrow and long, but would be perfect for entertaining. It definitely might be worth a second look. More on that in the future... hopefully.

The final house for the day was an older house in Batavia. It was nice and in great shape but the basement was unusable (except for storage and laundry) and it only had 1 bathroom and it was upstairs at that.

All in all, this was a great trip. Mostly because my wife used the word "like." We'll see what happens in the future. Actually, we're headed out this afternoon (Friday, Aug 22) to check out some more. We'll see what we find today. More pictures later.
