I have decided to call off the house search until January, at least. The market is drier than a freshman's throat when he is giving an oral presentation for the first time. Basically the only things in my price range are "fixer-uppers" and (dun dun dun!) doublewides.
I know I am a snob, but I don't want to invest in something that is not going to appreciate, and doublewides really don't, plus I have had allergic reactions to them before. I definitely don't want to buy a house I am allergic to.
I looked at a really cute little house today, and it was a great location, but it was a bit too fixer-upper for me -- as in, it had no floors. I need floors. I should put that on the list.
