My husband and I have been looking for a home. We’ve actually found a fetching house in a non-evacuation zone that we put an offer on. Still no word back.
I think if I spend enough time sneaking around the backyard and peaking in the windows eventually the house will become mine by default. The bank that owns it doesn’t seem to be aware of this rule of ownership. They think they have to accept my offer. They don’t realize I’ve been sleeping in the detached garage out back.
Anyway … I wrote a guest post for Aiming Low towards the beginning of our house search about … you guessed it … searching for houses. They actually posted it. Go figure. Anyway you should check it out you can find it here.
