Rained in Lubbock! Home Hunt Begins!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with TechTown Realty, Licensed in Texas 578384

Praise the Lord that it rained in Lubbock yesterday.  We had no appreciable/measurable rain since last October.  Bad news is the rain came in pretty fast and our ground was so hard...lots of run off and some street flooding.  Still, needed the rain mucho.

Beginning a house hunt for myself and hubby!  Downsizing from 2800 sq feet with almost 2 acres, large pool, huge workshop located in Ransom Canyon to a house in Lubbock.  My wish list. (now I am the picky buyer) 

2/2/2 or 3/2/2 (if 2/2/2 would need an office or studio or 2nd living)

1750 sq ft - 2200 sq ft

curb appeal

prefer 2 table areas

mature landscaping but minimal mowing (I know!)

established Lubbock neighborhood

character, charm

no cookie cutter home

move in ready or close

not in flood zone (hello...hasn't rained till yesterday in 9 months...but still)

laundry room

Not in Farrah because I already lived there!

Up to 160K but would love to find a cute little casa for 115K to 140K

Take possession by October 1

Not asking for much am I?

Hi Gayle!  Actually, I am a great realtor!  So I will be client and REALTOR and may soon better understand what our buyers go through when they have to compromise.  :-)
