House Hunting In Southern Ontario.


It has been a while since I last posted. My excuse: house hunting! 

My husband, Mark, and I have been in Southern Ontario for since Sunday and have been busy bee's looking at homes and trying to find the one that suits us best. It has been quite the experience. This will be our first house - if we are lucky enough to get one - and I knew that it was going to be work but it is a lot more work than I thought. So many things to think about: When was the roof last done? The windows? When was the furnace and water tank last replaced? What does the foundation look like? Is there mould or leaks anywhere? What is the neighbourhood like? What are the property taxes like? Is it close to amenities? Schools? Hospitals, etc?

And then, if any of these questions are answered with an unflattering response, you are more inclined to move on to the next house. It is a strange and can be a stressful process to go through but God has been with us the entire time, blessing us with great people to work with, beautiful homes to look at and a great new place to be moving to! 

I am optimistic for the future and here is hoping that we find the perfect first home to grow our family - no babies yet, but someday! - and a home where we can grow together. :)

If you have gone through a similar experience (house hunting, apartment hunting, etc.), what was it like for you?

Sorry for the poor quality photo.. it's a phone upload :).
