The Hunt Begins
Kim and I officially started our house hunt tonight. We toured the first set of houses with our agent Jamie. We limited our search to two areas of the bay area; Milpitas and Evergreen (a part of San Jose). Milpitas has something of dubious reputation in the area; many claim it kind of smells there (because of its proximity to the bay). However I'm wondering if this is still true in areas of Milpitas that are a bit farther away from the bay and higher up on the hills. I really liked a couple of the neighborhoods in Evergreen (the ones high up on the hill looking over the valley).
Sadly, we only really liked one house we saw and it was in Milpitas. It has a lot of potential and fits a lot of things we are looking for. All the image in the collage above are from this house (first time using Picasa's collage feature). The image below is the view of the street from the Master Bedroom.
