"All over the place"

That's how I would describe the house buying process for us!
We can't make up our minds.

This house is heading to foreclosure and we like it, but it's in a neighborhood.

Then there's this beauty (hmmm...not quite). I don't even think we could live in the house... yes, it's that bad. Let's just say the only thing that lives in it right now is a multitude of cats. But it's headed to auction and it's on over 4 acres. Love the land, not the house. We would have to tear down and build ourselves.

We loved this house, but it just sold at Sheriff's sale a week before we closed on our old house.
We probably would have bought it and loved it, but I guess that wasn't God's plan for us.

And then there's our dream house (I took this picture from inside yesterday). Can you see why? Look at that view, look at the fields. We have had our eye on this place since March. It's been in foreclosure since last December and we LOVE the land. We LOVE the location (it's perfect) but the house is a mess. I mean a big mess. Lots of plumbing and electrical problems. Bad construction, etc. And the house is big, so the utilities would be expensive. What to do, what to do?
----------------
So right now we are waiting! We're doing nothing (much to the dismay of our realtor). Since we don't have peace about anything, we're not going to do anything.

And that's the update. Maybe next time I'll have something more exciting to share.
