For about 6 months now, T and I have been looking for a house to call home. We've seen quite a few houses now and I think we finally really know what we need and what we want. It took me a little longer to come to terms with what we can get for what we want to give (price for amount of house), but we're finally on the same page. We both want a home (a lot), but we're also both understanding about what we can realistically get and what we need. We are also not willing to give up the search early just to get a house. We want a home, not just a house. Anyway, to help us with our quest, I've come up with a little grade sheet that we'll be able to use when we visit potential homes.
