I'm not much of a TV watcher, but now that I've found HGTV I am hooked. This station has a lot of home redecorating shows but it also has a first time home buyer show. Young couples search for their first home. They show three homes and show the couple going through the looking and purchase process.
I wonder why it's never a single woman of a certain age we see??
At any rate it is interesting. They also have another site called Front Door which lists homes across the country and also has tips for homebuyers.
The house shown above is the first and only home I ever owned back when I was married. It is about twelve minutes from Mom's house. It cost $13,000 back in the mid-seventies.
