More Internet House Hunting

I just found a great area for us to look for houses next year: South Elgin, Illinois. It is about 10 minutes or so directly west of us on Bartlett road and if we look there we can find the type of houses I've been salivating over here in Barlett, but in our price range. And I'm not talking just barely in the range, but completely and totally in the range along with a hot tub and a fancy schmancy swing set in the back yard to boot. As it turns out, we are close enough to this town that the kids in this neighborhood already attend the South Elgin middle school and high school. I had no idea. I took the girls on a little jaunt over there on Wednesday afternoon and I about had a heart attack when I saw how beautiful these houses were. I know I'm headed to suburban yuppie-town USA but lets face it: look where I am now. I If I'm going to be a soccer mom from the 'burbs I should at least have an awesome house to show for it, right?

  1. That sounds great! Sure, if you are going to be the Soccer Mom, at least embrace it in all it's glory. That sounds like a great deal, for that same amount, you could purchase a studio apt./condo here in Arlington, VA. We'd be out in West Virginia by the time we could afford to buy!
    Scoop it up!
