old home vs. new home1:44 PM
As Steve and I delve into the housing market we are forced to ask ourselves what we really want. Personally I really want to move to DC and Steve wants to move to either Brazil or NY (either of which I am fine with too)....but if life teaches you one thing it is that you don't always get what you want. :) So we have been looking at houses up north in the Kaysville, Farmington and Fruit Heights area. We went on a drive last Sunday and fell in love with the area. It is just so green and beautiful.
So...new home in a newer area with a few fixer-uppers, less mature landscaping and not really knowing what the neighborhood will be like in 10 years...
New home kitchen
(granite, stainless steel appliances, small fixes to look more my style)
or an older home in a more established area, with beautiful trees and farther east...but, and a BIG but, most of the houses are built in the 70's and tend to be ugly and dated looking and the inside needs a major cosmetic update...
Old home kitchen
(white, white, white and oak...NOT my style but very fixable)
New home living room...
(would love it if it were hardwood flooring)
old home living room
(they did do some fix up and I love the hard wood....)
