I’ve been obsessing over real estate sites lately in anticipation of our impending move to Houston. We still don’t have a date but we have a general time frame of approximately June.
One thing I know is that I think I’d like an older home because of the maturity of the neighborhoods I’m seeing. I desperately want mature trees in a beautifully shaded neighborhood, something we’ve missed greatly since moving to DFW. In searching these areas, I’m finding a lot of homes with HUGE makeover potential…and really UGLY fireplaces. Don’t get me wrong, I do not hate brick (and goodness knows, Texas loves their brick) but an entire wall of it dating back to the 1970′s may be a little much for me.
