We spent 2 weekends looking at a bunch of different houses in our price range that were the style and size we were looking for in the area of town we were looking in. We narrowed it down to 4 and went back through with my dad to get his thoughts. We ruled one out right away as it was a short-sale but with some complications we'd rather not deal with.
So we narrowed it down to the 2, one was the best out of what we saw our first weekend of looking, the other was one my mom saw an open house listing for in the paper that we went and saw. The 2nd one, by the time we went back with our realtor to look at it, they raised the price $9k as they went ahead and started finishing the basement. The original price was within our loan amount, but since they raised it, it was out our price range, not to mention just more than what we were willing to pay anyway and we had a feeling it'd be tough to talk em back down to the original price after they finished the basement.
