Home buyers: Do you drive around looking for houses for sale?
I'm wondering if anyone else has put as much mileage on their vehicles as me and my husband have in searching for their home. Unfortunately, we haven't found our home yet. We're not very picky, we're just looking for a house that has a good lot away from other homes and sometimes that's hard to see on the internet. So many times the pictures on the internet have made a home look like it's secluded or woody, and when you go see it in person either the house is too close to another or the general area is a not ideal.
We're also looking (by car) in the areas we'd like to live in. We told our real estate agent once that we did this and she looked at us as if we were crazy. I don't think there's anything crazy about it at all when you're actively looking and you truly need to find a house as soon as possible.
