I am quickly learning that even in a buyer's market you will get what you pay for. I've been watching the real estate listings daily for weeks now, and the houses that are currently still being lived in are tiny. I don't mind tiny, in fact I want a small house (a "condo alternative"), but even these houses I think are small.

The houses that are not being lived in and are listed "as is" need work beyond my ability (or potential ability). They also need more money than we could pour into it, as many of them would need to be gutted or even torn down and rebuilt.

So we'll need to adjust our price range another $50k and hope that the market waits another year before it picks up again.
