It's time for another round of the boy behind the blog! Since finding out we are staying in Virginia, we have had home buying on the brain. This will be our first time buying a home together, and we are so excited! We have been gulping the house hunting koolaid and can browse zillow for hours looking at all of the prospects. I decided to ask Parker a few questions about the home buying process, so here's more from the boy behind this blog...
Questions and Answers (my responses to his answers are in gold):
1. What is the most important feature in a home for you?
That's difficult. Probably location. I want somewhere that is safe and reputable. Somewhere where I know Chelsea will be okay when I am at work or deployed.
Thanks, hubs. I'll make sure to take my trusty guard dog wherever I go.
2. Hardwoods or carpet?
Hardwoods. Is that even a question? That'a like asking someone "toilet paper or hand?".
Thank you, husband, for that visual.
3. Do you tend to favor homes with a lot of "character" or new construction?
Ohh that's hard. The dream home has both, but of course in the house buying process you have to compromise, I hear. We will see what our realtor convinces me of.
I'm team new construction, so I'm interested to see what we end up liking as we start to tour homes for sale.
4. What is a feature you want but are willing to sacrifice if the right home came along?
A shorter commute to work
Since I work from home, we really only have his commute to think about. I would love to keep it as short as possible, but we will see where we end up.
5. Do you think we should apply for House Hunters?
Sounds like a fun experience, right? Stay tuned for that one!
Question: Have you ever bought a home? We'd love to hear your advice!
