For those of you house hunting what is your criteria when considering it? I haven't started yet but so far I think I definetly want at least 1.5 baths a garage and a basement (might consider an attic if no basement).

We just wanted a complete house with all of its parts (i.e., EIK, FDR, den , LR, 2 bathrooms, etc.). We saw so many houses that were missing a room that we decided we only wanted a house if it had everything. We compromised on other things like the size of the property.

Our Must Haves are:

Openess - We hate houses that are closed in

Eat in kitchen thats been updated

1.5 plus bathrooms that have been updated

Finished or unfinished Basement

Garage and Driveway

Fireplace Gas or wood burning. Gas is preferred

Nice size yard - So we can build a deck, and put in a hot tub.

Quiet Residental Street

Low taxes

Excellent School District

At least 3 bedrooms

Updated electric and Plumbing

Updated Exterior

We are in no rush to buy a house...So I dont care if I am asking for a lot. If I cannot find this right away then it is fine with me...but we dont want to settle for something we are not going to be happy with. When we buy a house, it will be the house we are going to raise our children in.

If the house needs to be painted on the interior, or needs carpet that is fine, because we would probably repaint anyway...and my brother in law does carpet so I get a good deal there....

Not sure about hard wood floors...I only like them in dining rooms...and possibly living rooms....and hallways. They make the house feel cold to me....

Our initial must-haves:
- big kitchen
- good closet space
- lots of windows
- front porch and back patio
- hardwood floors
- location: decent neighborhood within a 20 minute commute

Later we also added:
- bathrooms in which DH could actually stand up in the shower, and not touch his knees to the opposite wall when he sat on the pot (we had to turn down THREE otherwise nice homes because they didn't meet these simple requirements...)
- non-creepy basement

-had to be in a specific zip code(s)

We quickly learned that it was all about location for us and that as long as we had that, we could pretty much work with it.
