What do you look for in a home?

Bright and early on Tuesday morning, the hubs and I are headed to Mississippi (about thirty miles from Jackson) to help his brother pack and preen his house to sell. I’ve seen photos – it’s a roomy rambler, custom built by an architect, with a pool, on a small lake. But, it’s been a bachelor pad for over a decade.

My brother-in-law is one of the nicest men I know and he’s newly retired from doing social service type work in the Delta (aka not huge pay checks). I’m packing my favorite gardening tools, as I know about curb appeal. If you were looking for a house, what really matters? I have a realtor I can consult with, but I’d like to hear your thoughts on the most important aspects.

On my home front a bit south of Seattle, we received a half inch of grapple on Sunday!

I’m taking my laptop along to MS, and plan to write during the flights and in the evenings. The weather is in the high 70’s there. Dry warmth will be a welcome break from our un-spring-like weather. Keep in touch and Happy Trails, Sally.

    Well, Berry and I always looked for light and space. Windows were very important to us. Your brother-in-law‘s place sounds interesting. Love the sound of a pool. But I am never living in Mississippi again.

    Definitely lots of light. I love a porch to hang out and read.
