So, we looked at the "slightly out of our price range" home and it was awesome. The house was bigger, more airy and with exposed beams; yard big enough to play football in and a fairly new hot tub. Felt so much better than the other one and we like the neighborhood better. So now we're all gung-ho on this house and will see what we can do to make it our price range without over extending ourself. Exciting time!
