President Obama wants to

put the dream of owning a home within reach for more families, so long as we’re making loans in the right way, and so long as those who buy a home are prepared for the responsibilities of homeownership.

So in order to help out the economy, I’ve been looking at homes and just about every other week I find one I really want. Prince Charming is usually un-entertained by my premature desires to own a home, so I am going to post this week’s home here.

This home is a little south of where we live now, so closer to where the Prince works and a little farther away from where I work but it’s supposedly close to a downtown area (which we like, and this downtown area has a theater with music shows!). It’s about $80k less than our proposed price range and it’s smaller than those I am usually pining for as it is a 2 bed, 1 bath and 860 square feet. I figure since it’s lower than we might be approved for, it (hypothetically) gives us plenty of wiggle room to outbid others.

Though the house is 80 years old, it has hardwood floors and tile in the kitchen and utility areas. A two car garage, central forced air, wood burning fireplace in the living room and updated kitchen and bathrooms. Most importantly, here are the pictures!

Now hopefully I can get this one out of my system.
