So far, our realtor has sent us listings for Queen Creek, and that's pretty much it. Please don't get me wrong, folks. I've got nothing against the QC. But when we specify that we'd like something closer "in town" we don't really expect to see Florence listings. It's sort of bordering on mind-bogglingly aggravating.
It's especially a problem for me when I google search 'Gilbert listings under $130,000 walking distance to elementary schools' and come up with a crapload of positive search results. Do you think it's possible that my realtor has just never heard of Google? or Gilbert?
I'm not really sure what it is that would make up The Perfect House, which I'm sure irritates the realtor to no end. Mostly I just want a place that has high walkability in the neighborhood. A park, a grocery store, a school, and maybe even a community pool would all be awesome. Four bedrooms, clean, nobody died in it... I don't think I'm asking too much.
But maybe I need to be more specific? I don't know. Wood floors in the living room would be nice. Maybe a window over the kitchen sink? What did you guys search out for when you were looking for your home?
(We'll play Dream House another day. Like, of course a guest house in the back, and a great big sun porch, and an elevator would all be awesome, but I'm sort of pretty much positive we're not getting that in our price range, you know? REALISTICALLY, what goes into your perfect home? And if those things are realistic to you, then why have I not hit you up for money yet?? You are so buying lunch next time we're out)
