The house hunt

Seven easy steps to finding the ideal home:

  1. Stumble into house hunting halfheartedly — pretty much as a joke.
  2. Set a price limit that, while affordable, limits you to houses that are too small for your family, or require at least the asking price in repairs, rendering your price limit meaningless.
  3. Early on, settle on a house that you’re not particularly crazy about. Go the whole way, paying to have it inspected and so forth, and agonize a good deal about it.
  4. Back out at the last minute, triggering huge relief on your part and crushing disappointment on the part of the seller (ideally so much so that they take the house off the market.)
  5. Return to the hunt, mostly because you want to get the whole thing over with.
  6. On the next outing, discover a house that is ideal and pretty much feels like home as soon as you walk in the door.
  7. Make an offer that, given how quickly the sellers accept, causes you to wonder how much you overpaid.
