Josh and I spent a few weeks using every available internet hour to search for houses. Houses were going in days and we were not going to be beat out. We had now seen 11 houses and none seemed worth putting an offer in. In desperation, we were tempted to put in an offer on a move-in ready bungalow. But it was close to the interstate (you could hear it with the windows open) and the few improvements we would have made would not change the fact that you were still 2 blocks from a 6 lane highway.
