The first house is a scary step - being tied down. No house is perfect. Houses are infinitely variable, unlike cars. After you have been looking for several months, the houses all run together in your mind. Think of a few things that are absolutely essential - location, double garage, inside laundry. After awhile you have a decent feel for the approximate value of various houses. Know this - no matter what house you buy or rent, after you have lived there about three weeks, you will not be able to wait to get home to your refuge from the world. Then it is home.

Yes! It should be love at first sight. If in doubt, walk out. Because your wishes are not unrealistic. I spent many years watching prices rise out of my reach. Then they collapsed. Hopefully we won't see that again soon. Maybe you would like it. To me now it is Unthinakable!! But in one way or other it ought to be a no-brainer that you want it.

It's not like looking for a husband! But of course you have to be excited about it. If you like the house, it meets your needs, and is within your budget, then go for it. Falling in love with a house can be an expensive proposition....
