We just got back from looking at house #27. No Sale.
Xander said it needed all new wiring and the plumbing wasn't in very good shape either.
One mention of bad pipes and Buffy was out of there like she was trying out for the Olympic track team.
Who knew it would be so much trouble just to find a house we all like? It's not like we're looking for Buckingham Palace or something.
We just want good plumbing, plenty of bedrooms for all of us, plus enough bathrooms so that no one (usually me) has to stand out in the hall and wait.
And wait. And wait.
The real estate agent says she has another house to show us tomorrow that she thinks is exactly what we're looking for.
(Of course, she's said that about the other 27 houses, too.) She said the owners are very motivated to sell (which is real estate for 'desperate') and that the house is in excellent condition.
Of course, if it's all that great I wonder why she's waited so long to tell us about it?
Still, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she's right and that this is the one.
