How long have I been doing this???…..
Lately I have been getting lost in looking at houses that have the petechial of becoming my forever home. Every place that passes the first 5 checklist approved visuals makes me so happy. Until I get to the back yard and find a pool. I get so pissed.
I know what you may be thinking. “ You live in Nevada, why wouldn’t you want a pool?” My parents owned a pool, I have friends who have a pool and I grew up having a pool in every backyard. Pools are a lot of work and I am just not prepared to attempt it or have my family try it. What would you do with a underground pool that you didn’t want?
Pools add more to the price of the home, so I would be paying for something I would just remove anyway. Just seems like a waste to me. I am sure the people who had the house knew it was a great idea at the time, but it’s just not for my family or me.
I am enjoying looking at the houses. To see the ones with peoples stuff in it is also fun. I can see if they owned a dog or cat. In that case I have to move on too. George gets so sick with pet dander and when pollen is in the air. I don’t want to move into a place that would make him sick. I wonder how long it takes to clean out air ducts in that kind of situation.
One idea that I need to keep in mind when I look at these places is that every wall can be repainted. When I see a hot pink wall or a lime green kitchen I have to remember that I can repaint it, maybe improve it. Same idea when I look at the flooring.
I just can’t believe how fast I get lost in looking. I totally lose track of time. Does this happen to you? What are you doing when this happens to you and HOW do you snap out of it?
