Homebuying with a twist.

So we are currently looking for a house to buy. Looking at listings, checking locations and schools and neighborhoods. The twist is I am doing it all from well over 1000 miles away. Luckily I have trusted people close enough to the area to actually view the houses for me but I have to say buying a house sight unseen is a bit nerve wracking. Add that I have some important things on my list of needs and it is down right terrifying. Being all preparedness minded means I want space enough for decent food storage, an area to at least have some herb boxes if not a few more things. Ideally I would have a full garden but when in the desert not a lot grows there bountifully. I want a house that I can easily, if slowly, make as energy efficient as possible and that has space for a generator to be added. I have narrowed it to a couple options. My peeps will check them out top to bottom with tons of pictures. They will also do a basic inspection for me so we can be as informed as possible. Wish us luck!!

  1. I wish you luck. Friends are great and all but I would narrow it down to a couple of real candidates and fly out for a weekend to see them myself.


We love comments! We are happy to answer questions, join in debate and conversation, or just say hi. All we ask is for respect. Respect us and others. Keep it civil. Obviously we aren't afraid of cussing but we don't like anyone degraded or invalidated.

We also know we make mistakes. Feel free to call us out. You can't improve things that need it if you aren't aware of it.

If you have an opinion share it but know if it is going to cause hurt to someone we care about we will not approve it.

Most of all have fun!!
