Ugh. Househunting is so, soooo different when you already own a house, and want to move into a new one. It would be one thing if the realtor I worked with when I was searching 7 years ago was still in the business, but she's not. I'd totally work with her again.
Instead, we have to find a new realtor. And how do you do that if you don't know anyone that's bought/sold a house recently, or anything? It's hard. So. many. realtors. ::cries::
So we started by going out to some open houses to meet realtors, and get a feel for who might be a good fit for helping us out. Thing is, we also ran across open houses for homes we'd like to buy. And mixing the two activities wound up being a little exhausting.
I don't think we're very good at this real estate game, basically!
I don't know how quickly this process will go for us, but I'm hoping it goes smoothly. Wish us luck! I'll keep everyone updated as the process progresses...
